Quotes from partners and investors:
“A more environmentally friendly approach to energy consumption was something our students had pushed hard to achieve.
We are impressed with the ongoing partnership which has been forged between the school and OVESCO including the support for The Ashden Award.”
“The live readings from our solar panels, along with individual pupils taking responsibility for turning off lights and equipment demonstrate how substantial savings in cost and CO2 terms can be made.”
