Nessfield Goes Green!
We have recently had 80 solar panels installed on the Year 5/6 block. They are all switched on and working brilliantly, enabling us to sell power back to the national grid already. We are also installing a television screen in school which will enable the children to see how much electricity the panels are generating in order to improve their understanding of sustainable energy and the impact they can have on the planet. With all the sunny weather we have been having recently, the panels are working overtime. We are aiming to have zero electricity bills which would be amazing!
We have not only installed solar panels. The insulation in school has been improved and we are working on installing LED lights across school. The heating system has also been upgraded.
Who knows what green initiative we will have next? Maybe a wind turbine or electric car charging point!
