At my son’s primary school in North London we have all the basic conditions needed to kick-start a solar photovoltaic panel project. It’s not always easy, but we are getting through the first hurdles and have made progress with fundraising.
As I mentioned in my previous blog post, we have a promising combination of enthusiastic parents and staff. When I first raised the prospect of installing solar panels with the Parent School Association (PSA), many were keen to help and get the children involved in educational and fundraising activities on the ‘solar’ theme. We meanwhile heard governors are supportive, too.
