St Stephen's School
St Stephen’s is a Community Primary School which represents its local area extremely well. They are passionate about providing an engaging and creative educational environment which strives for excellence.
The school ensures pupils are very active and the beautiful grounds allow outdoor education to be a feature of how they deliver the curriculum. They celebrate their heritage whilst also using technology widely to prepare children for success in an ever-changing technological world.
St Stephen’s School Solar requirement is about embracing sustainability. The school began looking at energy saving measures across the site and were keen to install a Solar PV array towards this end. They also wanted to take advantage of Salix funding – Salix provides interest-free Government funding to the public sector to improve its energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions and lower energy bills, providing that the resulting cost savings pay for the loan within an eight-year period. Solar PV is one of the technologies supported by Salix.
IU Energy was asked to provide Solar Photovoltaic (PV) array within these Salix guidelines.
As a final condition, the installation had to be carried out during the Easter school holiday period to minimise disruption to daily life. This also ensured that students were off site whilst scaffolding was present and our team of highly skilled installers were carrying out work.
