Simplifying solar

Conergy UK celebrates launch of 'Solar On Schools Program' as first installation gets underway

Posted by Stephanie Broad | December 24, 2015 | Sustainability

Solar developer Conergy has launched a unique initiative that will provide the UK education sector with insight and inspiration on the potential financial, educational and environmental benefits of renewable technology. 

The 'Conergy Solar on Schools Program' initiative aims to deliver a plain English introduction to solar.

Stakeholders can access energy-use and cost savings analysis; the installation and lifetime maintenance of a solar PV system; and stakeholder engagement support and full project management — from planning through to installation.

The official launch comes as work gets underway on an installation at an academy in West Bromwich, a 60kWp rooftop solar system.

“A number of people within the education sector have contacted us, but were unsure whether solar was the right choice for them,” said Conergy UK’s Managing Director Paul Weaver who has spent 25 years of his career building schools. 

“We have developed the ‘Conergy Solar on Schools Program’ in a bid to provide not only insight on the whys and wherefores, but also the potential wider return on investment including how the data collated can feed into the learning of students; simply put, our objective is to make things easier for many people who are interested in renewable technology and, specifically, Solar PV.”
