You should come over to MK and marvel at the local schools that have installed solar panels and wind turbines in the playing fields.Kevin do you or anyone else advise councils who are building new schools on optimising roof design for solar panels? I'm continually amazed at the amount of new builds that don't have uncluttered south facing roofs.
Can you not approach the board of school governors with this plan?Hoa - Marvelling is one thing but it's just plain common sense for a school to do this. When I was in school Oh, SO, SO long ago one of the science masters got a class to construct their own solar hot water array and put it on the roof of the school.
If my kids' schools came to me and had a rights issue then I would be right up there with my cheque book. I'd also be saying that they should have a chat to PaveGen about some of their product
Prob be best if you get all your ducks lined up first:Funny that you should say this! My wife IS a school governor. Perhaps we should
Take a look at the 10:10 Solar Schools scheme;Funny that you should say this! My wife IS a school governor. Perhaps we should
Does a small project such as this require another organisational layer?
Installing solar on a school is a huge project and personally I'm happy that someone else is organising this... obviously, if you have time then get involvedDoes a small project such as this require another organisational layer?
That's up to the School... in the projects I've been involved with, they funded the whole project and kept the FIT.Another body inserted in the middle that takes a cut of the FIT payments.
