FOI Request Electricity Costs
What is the cost to the council for the electricity to run the Christmas lights within Elgin and the Moray communities for the past 3 years? (Broken down by year)
There is no electricity costs to the council for the community Christmas Lights. Each town pays for the electricity themselves through local funding. Each community council or association returns a form that tells us how much load in watts that their Christmas lights will use, which we then submit to our energy supplier and they produce a bill for each group. We then send this to them for payment.
