New solar panels are set to save Moor Hall Primary School more than £2,000-a-year – equivalent to the cost of powering more than 200 computers.
Moor Hall Primary School one of the Four Oaks Cluster Schools has fixed 160 solar panels to its roof as part of the Birmingham Energy Savers initiative.
The first two phases of the Energy Savers scheme have seen solar panels added to more than 1,300 homes and 20 other buildings across the city.
Moor Hall headteacher Andrew Steggal said: “It is extremely important that the children learn about being ‘eco friendly’.
‘‘In this way we can not only improve our efficiency as a school but, most importantly, encourage children to be proactive in sustaining the world they are growing up in,” he said.
In the third phase of Birmingham Energy Savers, which is set to be launched before Christmas, the council will work with Carillion Energy Services to deliver energy-saving projects to up to 60,000 homes and 1,000 other buildings by 2020.
