Solar panels for schools and universities are a great investment, not only financially but showing and teaching your students about green energy. These are the people of our future so who better to teach about renewable’s and environmental sustainability, one day they will be leading the way and with this knowledge they can make it a greener future than us.
With the Carbon Trust and Siemens financing it may also be possible to offer you a system with no up front cost. There is certain criteria to meet for this but if you contact us we could talk to you about this and get an idea what is best, with this scheme you would pay off the system with the cost savings from the system and the payments from the feed in tariff.
There are also possibilities for the school or college to get a PPA agreement where you would get the system for free and you would buy your electricity at a reduced rate from the investor. This would reduce your bills saving thousands a year.
We have experience in the education sector having worked with university sites, colleges, academies and schools. Solar panel installs are generally advised out of term, this gets round lots of safety concerns and disruption to the students and staff.
