SOLAR FOR SCHOOLS & EDUCATION
Educational premises are associated with having large buildings, often spread across multiple sites. With ample roof space available, most clients are applicable to take advantage of a free solar PV system through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) and enjoy the benefits of reduced energy bills and be protected against future energy price rises.
The above link will give you more detail about a PPA but in principle, your school can have a solar PV system installed and maintained for free over a typical 20-40 year term. With the feed-in tariff payments for generation going to a nominated 3rd party, your school will in turn purchase any generated electricity from us at an agreed price per unit; much cheaper than your current energy supplier, saving you money on your bills.
Although energy bill savings are generally the main motivator for schools to invest in energy technology, it is becoming more desirable for schools to employ a level of sustainability and environmental awareness; energy technology installations such as solar and LED can be a huge contributor to achieving the Green Flag environmental award.
