Solar Schools 2015-16 now open for applications

Post by ALEO Admin » Thu Apr 30, 2015 12:22 pm

On 29 April, applications opened for Solar Schools 2015-16. There are just 20 places up for grabs and schools have until 3 June to start an application.

As ever, all successful schools receive a full package of tools, training and support completely free and, this year, the model has been tweaked to enable schools to raise less money and install more panels. There are two Solar Schools paths to choose from:
1. Solar Schools classic: raise £8 -15k and own your solar panels outright.
2. Solar Schools community: raise £5k+ and invest in a larger, co-owned solar roof for the school

If you need a reminder of how the project works, check out the website http://www.solarschools.org.uk
