Community-Owned Provider Installs Solar System For Sussex, UK School
Posted on 02 July 2012 by Priyanka Shrestha
A secondary school in East Sussex has had 143 solar panels installed on its rooftops, which is expected to generate more than 35,000 kWh of electricity per year.
Ovesco, a community-owned renewable energy provider installed the PV panels with the help of Southern Solar at Lewis Priory school. The company claims the school will save around £3,000 on energy bills.
Tony Smith, Head of the school said: The school was under pressure to reduce costs and I struggled to see how we could improve efficiency with little funds. In return for our roof space, the solar installation will reduce our energy costs while supporting a very worthwhile community initiative.”
