What we do

Public Power Solutions is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Swindon Borough Council offering innovative solutions for public sector organisations in the areas of Power and Waste.

We work with local authorities throughout the UK to deliver renewable energy projects providing savings, new income streams and environmental benefits.  We have a proven track record and have developed over 170MW of solar to date.

Our business model is a “bridge” between public and private sectors, helping local authorities review their assets and energy loads and creating viable development propositions and financing structures. We engage with private sector developers through an accelerated, but procurement compliant tendering system to construct and commission new schemes.

This model creates sustainable income opportunities for public sector organisations and generates commercial projects for private sector developers – all whilst supporting the move to a more sustainable energy future.

Public Power Solutions developed and built the UK’s first Solid Recovered Fuel plant in 2014 using municipal waste as the primary feed source.  The plant is located at the Swindon Borough Council depot site and has provided them with significant savings in disposal costs as well as diverting 97% of waste from landfill.

We also manage all of Swindon Borough Council’s household waste treatment and disposal as well as offering a commercial waste recycling service.
