How could your school save up to £8000/year with solar power?

11th August 2014

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.

Here’s how it breaks down if your school had 50kWp of solar panels installed:

  • £5,100 
    – Payment for every unit of electricity your panels generate. Also known as Feed-In Tariff.
  • £1,900
    – Savings on your electricity bills
  • £1,000
    – Selling electricity you don’t use to others on the national grid.
