Case Study

Chilton Primary School

The project:

It was clear when we met with Chilton school how important their environmental activities were, both in terms of educating their school community including 240 pupils, as well as taking many actions taken to reduce energy use and look after the environment.

Our scheme was therefore a good fit, and the school had an excellent roof available. There was a grid constraint which meant it wasn't possible to utilise quite as much of the roof as first intended - however there are still a very impressive 115 solar panels, each with a peak capability of 260 watts in good sunny conditions.
