Welcome to our 28th solar school
We're really pleased to welcome our 28th solar school to the Low Carbon Hub. Longfields Primary and Nursery School in Bicester now have a fully installed array of solar panels that will provide around a third of the school's energy needs.
Over the lifetime of the project, this renewable energy project will save 380 tonnes of CO2 from being emitted and save the school around £16,000 in bills.
Installed at no cost to the school, the scheme is one of the projects you can support when you invest in the Low Carbon Hub’s most recent community share offer, the Community Energy Fund.
Longfields are the second school to sign up as a solar school following recent reductions to the Feed-in Tariff, the subsidiary for renewable energy. We're delighted that despite these reductions, schools remain keen to install solar panels and want to work with us, demonstrating what's possible when we work together to power up our communities.
