Case Study

Rose Hill Primary School

The project:

Rose Hill Primary School is situated on the iconic ‘Oval’ in Rose Hill, teaching over 370 children from nursery through to the age of 11. The school is at the heart of one of Oxford’s regeneration areas and is working hard in challenging circumstances to provide nurturing support and quality teaching. We are delighted to be working with them to provide green energy, valuable cost savings and an exciting project to engage students and the community.

Coordinated by organisation Bioregional (with multiple partners), the local community and low carbon group (Low Carbon Rose Hill & Iffley) around the school have recently been part of an energy storage pilot, ‘Energy Resources for Integrated Communities’ (ERIC), working with over 100 houses to install solar PV and Maslow energy storage units. We’re looking at ways to integrate with Project ERIC and add battery storage to the school as soon as possible.

The 108 solar panels stacked on end would be as tall as the Gherkin Building in London!
