Hands up 4 Solar Schools
24 May 2019
Friends of the Earth think every school should be able to be a Solar School. To lead on climate action and power themselves with clean, free electricity generated right from their rooftop. This year we are helping 5 schools to go Solar. Next year we will help 26!
If you want your school to be powered with solar power, and think others should be able to too, then we need you!
Fill in our survey and register for our Solar Schools competition launching in September 2019 where we will help 26 schools with ALL the technical and bureacratic adminstration of the installation and 90% of the cost!
Schools need planning permission to put up even one solar panel. They are not entitled to any payment for any surplus power they might generate (for example over the holidays or weekends) and grants are not straightforward to access for microgeneration.
It needs to be easier. It should be easier. Register your school now and together we can show our power to demand the changes we need.
Wondering if any schools are interested in Solar 4 Schools? Check out this map showing all the schools who have signed up.
