Right in the heart of Oxford, Cheney School had 362 solar panels installed on their rooftop in partnership with Low Carbon Hub. The panels are split across three metal roofs, generating 77,378kWh per year of clean electricity to help power the school. The scheme will save 36.4 tonnes of CO₂ emissions annually. Further, the solar panels also support the education of the school’s 1400 pupils, teaching them about energy, climate change, and the role of renewables.
The solar panels were funded as part of a Low Carbon Hub share offer, meaning that parents, staff, and members of the local community had the opportunity to invest, own the panels, and gain interest on the electricity generated and sold.
