RENEWABLE ENERGY The PCC is pleased to advise that all our electricity supplies for 2017/18 are from renewable sources—mainly solar panels. This has been achieved at no extra cost due to our membership of the Parish Buying scheme which bulk buys energy supplies to achieve savings from a strong negotiating position.
