If schools could borrow money for solar panels they could save up to £8,000 a year while producing the lovely clean energy that we desperately need.
Caroline Flint, Shadow Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, has said today (Monday 22 September) that the Labour Party would make it easier for schools to install solar panels, by removing restrictions on access to finance.
This is a fantastic opportunity, so we’re really keen to reach as many primary schools as possible. Please get involved and nominate a school to run on sun.
Let our new infographic walk you through the numbers. Friends of the Earth calculates that schools could each save up to £8,000 per year through solar panels. This means more money to spend on facilities like playgrounds and nature gardens.
