Case Study

Wood Green School

The project:

Wood Green Secondary School in Witney is joining the Low Carbon Hub solar schools scheme to put 200 solar panels on their roof. This busy school has around 1000 pupils, and has already been doing great work engaging them in environmental issues through eco days and competitions. As well as achieving Eco Schools silver flag status - one of their school eco-teams recently won a county-wide competition with their eco business idea of upcyling school litter into jewellery! It’s fantastic to add to this work by enabling the school to generate green electricity, reduce the community’s carbon footprint and inspire pupils to learn more about energy and climate change.

The 200 solar panels stacked on end, would be taller than the biggest building in Europe... the Shard!

The Low Carbon Hub is very grateful to local community group Sustainable Witney for their support of this initiative.
