The Mayor of Wellington, Cllr Dorothy Roberts, joined Telford & Wrekin Council today at their opening of the UK’s first bus station in Wellington to generate its own electricity in a bid to further reduce the carbon footprint of the borough.

T & W council have worked with suppliers Etesian Green and Journeo to create an ‘off-grid’ station where power is generated by multi-directional wind turbines and solar panels producing renewable, carbon-free energy.
