Solar panels at Ashley Primary School

Ashley Primary School was the recipient of a prestigious Ashden Award for sustainable energy.

The school’s energy plan has included solar photovoltaic panels, energy efficient lighting and a biomass boiler, as well as changes to behaviour both at school and at home.

There was a 51% reduction in annual electricity consumption at the school in the first year of the programme, whilst energy generated by the solar panels when the school is closed is sold onto the grid for 10p per kWh.
