Use more solar power

Solar panels could be introduced city-wide especially on public buildings but also on all new builds as a matter of course (see what they are doing in France in this respect). All GCC vehicles could be electric and charged from solar sources. Street lighting could be solar-powered. Income could be generated when surplus energy generated from solar power could be fed back to the grid.

Why the contribution is important

This idea is important because it would not only help to save money it would help to bring about a low-carbon local economy for Glasgow and also help to tackle the health risks of air pollution

    Good idea. Given that Glasgow is so often hidden under a thick blanket of the finest Atlantic cloud, though, I'd want to know to what extent that would affect overall energy generation.
