“The new solar panels add another dimension to the school’s eco-status but it is not just the renewable energy aspect that is welcome. We are now looking at around a third of the cost of our electrical consumption every year being covered by the panels that have been fitted and this is a significant sum that can be reinvested into the school. ”
Roger Mitchell – Headteacher
“Without them our lights would not work and we would not see our work. More schools should have solar!”
Poppy – Year 2
“In addition to the obvious educational and financial benefits, installing solar panels has contributed significantly towards Ripple Primary School being awarded the first ever ‘Green Flag’ award in Barking and Dagenham.”
