Solar panels cut school's energy bill
A SCHOOL hopes to save up to £4,000 a year by installing solar panels on its roof.
Children at Millfields Primary School, Wivenhoe, will benefit from the cash shaved off the school’s energy bills.
The panels were installed at no cost by Engynious Clean Power, who will sell back power to the school at a subsidised rate, will generate around 23 megawatt hours each year - the equivalent of around seven homes - and save 12 tonnnes of carbon.
As well as finding out about eco-science and how the panels work, youngsters at the Bowes Road school will also have the chance to practice their maths skills and learn life skills such as budgeting.
