Chair of the housing committee, Gill Williams, said; “We know many residents struggle with energy costs and that can have a real impact on their health and wellbeing.”
Solar panels will be installed on the roof of each council home and will provide tenants with free electricity whenever the panels are generating power. Surplus electricity generated will be exported to the national grid.
Brighton, which has committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030, has already a total of more than 360 solar-powered council houses.
Aside from a reduction in energy bills, the council have said that the installations could help to improve air quality in the city.
