A renewable energy firm is offering its low carbon expertise to a housing development in Swindon following the first eco-friendly housing competition in the region.

The Wichelstowe development - which will be made up of 3,350 homes - will receive up to 20 days of expert help from Regen SW, which will help the development increase its potential do reduce carbon emissions.

"This award is recognition of Swindon Borough Council's commitment to sustainable development, of which the Wichelstowe project is a key part," said Peter Greenhalgh, Swindon borough council's cabinet minister for planning, highways and transport.

He added that the group is "very pleased" to have won the additional low carbon support and claimed the region will use their experience with Regen SW to "set the template for all future development in Swindon".

Other low carbon developments in the south-west that are set to benefit from the scheme are based in Exeter, Plymouth, Taunton and Cheltenham.

According to Down With CO2, there are a number of firms that provide green electricity including Ecotricity and Good Energy.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18521669-ADNFCR
