Two schools in Wokingham are set to see a reduction to their business electricity bills thanks to a new green initiative commissioned by the local council.
Bulmershe and Forest schools have installed two solar photovoltaic panels on their rooftops in a bid to reduce energy consumption and lower utility charges, Solar Power Portal reports.
The new systems are expected to produce more than 18,000kWh of clean energy and save ten tonnes of CO2 from being emitted each year.
Both schools are hoping the renewable installations will help to inspire students to engage with environmentally-friendly technology and embrace energy saving measures.
Headteacher at Bulmershe School Peter Lewis said the project aims to emphasise to "young people and the wider community the importance of utilising green sources of energy whenever possible".
