Plans for 140 solar panels to be fitted to roof of Wigan's job centre
and live on Freeview channel 276
They would each have a capacity of 500W, giving a total of 70kWp, according to the application.
The panels would be installed onto an A-frame mounting system and be dark blue or black in appearance, with none of them installed more than one metre higher than the roof level and one metre from the edge of the roof.
The application is now subject to a consultation period and the council’s planning department hopes to make a decision on the scheme by the end of May.
