Havering could become the first London council to be powered by solar energy. Plans to develop two solar parks in Gerpins Lane, in Corbets Tey, Upminster, and on the land adjacent to Dagnam Parkin Harold Hill. The renewable energy could generate up to £1million a year for the council and would be used to reduce its running costs while funding frontline services. Residents would also be able to invest in a solar financial investment fund, a scheme which could provide long-term return on investment for individual investors. A proportion of the income generated from the solar farm on the Dagnam Park site, will be transferred to a ring-fenced community fund to maintain and improve the park and the surrounding area.
