Solar Energy saves money and cuts carbon!

SCUK has been asked by The Solar Schools Project to let you know about their great fundraising kit that helps schools to raise the money they need to install solar panels, and make the most of Solar Energy!

The Solar Schools Project provides each participating school with:

  • A webpage on the Solar Schools site – designed by experts to make it easy and appealing for family, friends, businesses and ex-pupils to donate.
  • Printed resources like banners, posters and stickers to help spread the word
  • Training sessions on everything from fundraising to press work
  • How-to packs, case studies and videos to help along the way
  • Staff support throughout the journey – their team is always on hand for advice.

The Solar Schools Project says:

“Investing in solar energy cuts carbon and cushions schools against rising fuel costs. ┬áPlus, thanks to government Feed-In Tariffs which provide an income to anyone installing renewable energy, (such as solar energy) our Solar Schools will enjoy an additional boost to their budgets for 20 years”

The Solar Schools Project brings far more than just finances to your school:

  • An exciting new way to teach pupils about energy by involving them in a positive, practical project that tackles climate change
  • New enthusiasm for eco-work within the school
  • Improved links with parents and local businesses & organisations
  • Boosting the profile of their school in the local area
  • New skills and confidence that can be applied to other exciting projects in the future!
