The Council now has staff trained to install solar panels and there is the possibility of accessing a loan fund to assist the cost of installing solar panels, or schools can fund the installation themselves.
This means that schools retain all the income from the Government’s ‘Feed in Tariff’; with the potential to generate free energy and create an income for many years after the cost of installation has been repaid.
More information is available on the
Education Buildings Team page (under Buildings on the site contents page).
If you are considering solar installation or would like to find out more please contact:
