We offered shares first to our local communities where the schools are located. Many of our existing shareholders invested on behalf of their children or grandchildren. The shares are a positive investment for many reasons as well as combating climate change and supporting a low carbon future. Every share purchased helps schools reduce their annual energy bills, reduce about 9 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per school per year; and inspire our next generation of children to be part of a sustainable future.
Our Sunny Solar Schools programme includes:
Installing solar on schools,
Providing schools with educational monitoring screens which demonstrate how much energy the school generates and uses,
Using additional profits to provide educational experiences about renewable electricity generation at local schools
