We have UK, European and global targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the proportion of the energy we use that comes from renewable sources. WinACC has developed plans to show how we in Winchester District could do our fair share. This isn't a blue-print. If you don't like our suggestions about how to hit the targets, come and argue for something else - provided that it adds up to our fair share!
