SEEd advised Solar for Schools on ways schools could make more of their solar panels in the classroom. Solar panels, and the ability to use a renewable energy source, are within the reach of many schools. In the UK and internationally, Solar for Schools is looking to put solar panels on to school roofs. At SEEd we see how solar panels can bring opportunities to link to the curriculum and the campus. We believe that by working with organisations like Solar for Schools we can achieve more and so encourage more schools to embrace a lower carbon future.
If you would like to join and help more schools take advantage of the opportunities, contact Ann Flaherty at Solar Options for Schools on 07946 245 556 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
N.B. for every £50,000 Solar for Schools invests in solar panels on a school in the UK, the school will benefit for between £100,000 and £200,000 in savings and profit share over the first 20 years of the system while saving over 600 tonnes of carbon emissions and helping reduce climate change.
