Saving Local Schools Money Through Solar
As part of our 2019 Solar For Schools project 13 local Sussex schools received free community-funded solar PV energy systems. Rudyard Kipling Primary School partnered with Brighton Energy Co-op (BEC) to put a 60kW community-owned solar energy system funded by BEC Members on their roof. The system provides a huge reduction in the school’s annual energy bill, as the solar electricity produced is much cheaper than grid electricity and also reduces their carbon emissions.
