Solar for Schools
There’s been a buzz around renewable energy for many years now, but schools certainly aren’t too late to get on board. We’ve teamed up with Solar for Schools to help you revolutionise the way your school uses energy – and even better, it will cost you nothing.
Solar for Schools is a social-impact business enabling schools to generate their own solar energy. From initial assessment to long-term management, Solar for Schools takes the risk out of the entire process for you, whilst cutting carbon emissions and educating the next generation about living sustainably.
More than 50 schools have already joined Solar for Schools. They promise to manage the process for you, enabling schools to do their bit and reduce global warming, without having to worry about looking after the panels or securing funding.
Solar for Schools guarantees you benefits both in the medium and long-term. For getting involved, you receive a free solar panel system and renewable power for at least 20 years – cutting your energy bills, reducing your carbon emissions and having a teaching resource that demonstrates your commitment to being more sustainable as a school.
