York Community Energy and City of York Council are working with Solar for Schools (SfS)to bring solar panels to York’s schools for free.
SfS is a social enterprise providing fully funded solar panels to reduce a school’s energy costs and emissions; a great way to combat the climate crisis and save some money in the process. Participating schools are sold the electricity they generate at a discounted price under a long-term, 25-year, agreement.
This not only reduces energy bills but can reduce exposure to rising energy costs. Installation, support, advice, and maintenance is covered by SfS.
The Council’s Carbon Reduction team will provide support to schools wishing to participate in the programme.
York Green Party are encouraging local students and staff to have their schools to contact email@example.com to express their interest in participation.
