The low carbon energy company has teamed up with ‘Less is More Capital’ to provide free solar for schools and colleges. The Less is More fund is a non-profit organisation backed by Santander to deliver cost and carbon reduction to schools and colleges. The whole process from design, installation and monitoring is provided by Low Carbon Energy. With over 10 years of experience delivering award winning services into the education sector It couldn’t be simpler.
Over the past few years, the demand for solar panels in schools, colleges and other educational establishments has grown. In fact, we’ve already fit a number of solar PV systems in schools, colleges and educational buildings across the North West. With benefits including a reduction in the cost of energy bills plus a reduction in carbon emissions, the switch to solar is win-win. The switch to renewables sends a great message to pupils too, inspiring them with the latest in technology and teaching them how they too can look after their world.
After discussing targets, emissions and finances with Burnley College, the team at Low Carbon Energy were able to develop a solar panel solution that gave the college everything they needed....
One of the obstacles, stopping many schools, universities, and colleges from making the switch to solar is the initial cost. While some of our clients are in a position to self-fund, this isn’t a necessity. We can also offer free solar for schools, nurseries, colleges and universities as part of an exclusive programme. Alternatively, Energy Efficiency Financing (EEF) is available too – taking away the strain of any upfront costs.
With EEF, your school will benefit from monthly savings on your energy bill plus Government feed-in tariff payments. At the same time, you’ll be making just one fixed monthly payment for the operating costs. As a rule, you’ll find your energy bill savings and the feed-in tariff payments will cover the fixed monthly payment.
With initiatives like this, it’s easy for your school to lead the way in cost and carbon savings and set the best example for our children’s futures.
For private schools and Academies we have teamed up with Less is More Capital who provide an innovative funding resource to devote to educating disadvantaged children.
