At 106.25kWp with 424 solar panels, The Warriner School’s solar PV scheme is one of our largest Low Carbon Hub installations. The scheme was up and running for the start of the Autumn 2014 term and generates 42,437kWh clean electricity per year, powering the school and saving 20 tonnes of CO₂ annually.
The school, situated the rural village of Bloxham, was already busy engaging pupils with environmental issues. They host the biggest school farm in the country, run with strong conservation and sustainability principles, and they also have a Green Travel plan which encouraged pupils to cycle, walk and use public transport.
The Warriner’s solar panels were funded through our 2015 community share offer, giving staff, parents and local residents the opportunity to invest 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.
