Could your school be a power station?
We’re working with Oxfordshire County Council to offer schools across the county the opportunity to assess their school’s suitability for solar panels.
If you have links to a school in the county - as a parent, teacher, governor or member of the community - then get in touch with them and show your support for solar!
By installing solar panels, schools can:
- save money on their energy bills via a discount on all solar electricity they purchase;
- cut their emissions and carbon footprint by using less fossil fuel generated electricity;
- educate their students about renewables with access to an online metering portal with real time data about the energy generated on site
- lead by example showing futures generation the importance of being environmentally aware and socially conscious.
We are looking for our first 20 schools to survey before Christmas so please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to find out more about the project.
We pay less and we are able to learn more about being responsible citizens, so it was an easy decision to make.

I would recommend other schools to become involved in this important initiative in order to protect our amazing planet for future generations.
