”We wanted to be environmentally friendly and cut costs as much as we could. Solar for schools would take out a lot of the hassle of a project of this type. There was no risk to us at all, all the risk is with the company. You can only benefit.“Kathy Haig, School Business Manager, Coopers Edge School, Gloucestershire
”One of our strategic intents is about developing the childrens’ responsibility for the environment and developing their understanding of sustainability in the broadest of sense. Having solar panels is the start of that.“Keely Folker, Head Teacher, Coopers Edge School, Gloucestershire
