Your school can now choose ‘green’ solar power and reduce electricity costs, whilst lowering its carbon footprint.
As energy prices continue to increase annually, Renewable energy is on the rise. Every school has the potential to generate its own energy. As most schools have a large roof, solar panels are the ideal choice. For those that really want to be green there are other alternatives such as Biomass Boilers or Air Source Heat Pumps.
The benefits of having Solar Panels installed:
Reduced energy bills – Solar Photovoltaic (PV) panels will reduce your schools electricity bills, allowing you to spend more money on education and resources. Solar Panels can generate electricity for decades offering substantial savings.
Revenue generations – The Government introduced the Feed-In Tariff (FiT) which allows schools to receive a fixed income for electricity generated annually and for any unused electricity exported back to the grid. Schools can enjoy a steady income over a 20 year period with Solar PV. As an example, most schools can accommodate a 25kW Solar PV system, which could generate an annual income of £3,435 at the current tariff rates. (Please check the OFGEM website for current FiT’s.)
Reducing CO2 emissions – Solar PV will significantly reduce your school’s CO2 footprint by several tonnes, each and every year.
Education and engagement – What better way is there to show pupils the benefits of renewable technologies than taking action and demonstrating the benefits though a working example. This will create direct engagement and will also inspire the local community to take action to address climate change.
Replacement boilers for schools – Kitchen areas often have excess heat that is extracted mechanically; this could be re-used by a heat pump to give ‘free’ hot water for cleaning, cooking etc. Ageing boilers become expensive to run and maintain; upgrading to a Heat Pump or a Biomass Boiler can reduce emissions and fuel bills whist also providing a welcome income from the Renewable Heat Incentive.
