Support for 20 New Solar Schools

Deadline for applications is 6th June – campaign group 1010 is working with Good Energy to turn 20 schools in the country solar – saving cash and carbon.

There’s more information at so if you’re parent well worth encouraging your children’s school to get involved.

To tackle just one issue, photo voltaic payback rates have dropped, but so too has the cost of installation so the rate of return on investment is still around 8%.

Even if you aren’t involved with a school there’s scope to help. As the web site says:

‘One of the things that we think is so exciting about Solar Schools is that it could be used in all sorts of different ways – for different renewable technologies and for different community-centred buildings. We would love to hear your ideas. If we can demonstrate that there’s a real appetite out there for other applications then we’re more able to get the support we need to do it. Please get in touch –‘.
