Edward Feild Primary and Foundation Stage School in Kidlington had 16kWp of solar PV installed in partnership with Low Carbon Hub, generating over 15,000kWh clean electricity per year and saving over 6 tonnes of carbon annually.
The school had already been doing great work engaging pupils with environmental issues. The school were awarded Eco-Schools Silver Award status in 2010 in recognition of efforts to “save it” and recycle, teaching ways to embrace an environmentally friendly way of life, and recycling 70% of waste on site. The solar panels installation makes a great addition to this commitment.
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.
