Right in the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, Stonesfield Primary is generating 33,526kWh of clean, green electricity every year. This will save 300 tonnes of CO2 over the projects lifetime, as well as help cut the school’s energy bills and teach the pupils about renewable energy.
The busy school had already been doing great work engaging pupils with environmental issues. The school is part of the Eco-Schools international award programme and has an active Eco Council.
Stonesfield’s solar panels were funded through our 2014 community share offer, giving staff, parents and local residents the opportunity to invest in and own the installation. The funds from the electricity generated give a return to the community who have invested in the panels, as well as helping reduce school bills and enabling future community-benefit projects.
Could your school be a solar school?
