Investing in Solar PV to generate long term savings to be reinvested back into teaching and learning

We have just completed the installation of a 19KWp Solar PV installation at Heath Hayes Primary Academy in Heath Hayes, Staffordshire.  The project is part of a series of upgrades at the Academy to generate long term savings.

The Academy had a perfectly orientated roof for Solar PV in good condition and the team at Bright Spark installed the bulk of the system in a single day.
