School cuts CO2 footprint thanks to solar power
ROWLEY Lane Junior Infant and Nursery School is cutting its carbon footprint thanks to its new solar panels.
The school was fitted with 20 panels, bought with a £20,000 grant from the Government and the Co-operative Green Energy for Schools Scheme.
In a year the panels can generate energy to power 33,000 computers for one hour and cut annual CO² emissions by two tonnes.
School bursar Deborah Walker said: “We’re very happy to have these here and it’s a step towards the eco-schools target.”
