Conergy UK Celebrates Launch Of "Solar On Schools Program"
Conergy is celebrating the launch of a unique initiative that will provide the UK education sector's decision makers with insight and inspiration on the potential financial, educational and environmental benefits of renewable technology.
Named the "Conergy Solar on Schools Program", the initiative is part of the company's commitment to working with educational facilities across the country "” including nursery, primary, secondary and academy schools, along with private, public, further education and universities "” to deliver a plain English introduction to solar.
The no upfront cost initiative, which can generate significant savings, will provide stakeholders with access to energy-use and cost savings analysis; the installation and life-time maintenance of a solar PV system; and stakeholder engagement support and full project management "” from planning through to installation.
The Conergy education team also offers bespoke, ongoing learning events catered to enhance an existing educational timetable "” including assembly presentations, site visits and workshops for students to help further learning around the environmental and economic benefits of renewable energy "” as well as the design technology and scientific aspects of the system.
The often significant savings against current utility costs can also be reinvested into the wellbeing of students "“ funding additional equipment and access to additional resources.
All educational facilities also have the option to engage in a power purchase agreement (PPA), which means that no costs for the system itself or ongoing maintenance are incurred.
The official launch comes as work gets underway on an installation at an Academy in West Bromwich, a 60kWp rooftop solar system. The installation of the system began on Dec. 7, and is expected to take just one week.
