Gartocharn Primary School going solar to power up energy efficiency
One of our neighbours, Gartocharn Primary School, has asked us to install a new solar PV system.
One of our neighbours, Gartocharn Primary School, has asked us to install a new solar PV system for them!
The green flag eco-friendly school is situated on the edge of the village of Gartocharn in the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and this new project will boost their energy efficiency credentials even further.
The school already has a biomass boiler which was installed last year. The existing boiler and the new solar PV system will reduce energy costs and reduce the school’s carbon footprint.
John McDonald, the Head Teacher of Gartocharn Primary School, said: “We’re pleased to have Absolute Solar and Wind return to install the solar PV. It’s important to us to reduce our energy use, being smarter about how we generate that energy is part of our futureproofing it. We look forward to seeing the results.”
We are committed to encouraging young people’s interest in Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) projects, so the latest project will provide a great opportunity to learn about solar PV.
Our Managing Director, Graham Provest said: “Absolute Solar and Wind is happy to return to Gartocharn Primary School to help them power up their energy production in a sustainable way. This project will promote understanding of carbon reducing and sustainable energy. We’re looking forward to engaging with the young people as the project nears completion to celebrate the installation.”
