A school in Little Thetford plans to use its 111 new solar panels for educational projects and to teach pupils about renewable energy.
Little Thetford Church of England Primary School is believed to be one of the largest solar array on a primary school in the local area.
The school plans to use the solar panels to teach pupils about renewable energy and to create data for learning in different subjects.
Jonny Wallace, head teacher, said: “We plan to use the panels for educational projects and try to involve the older children in recording the amount of electricity generated.”
“Renewable energy is an important part of modern life and how our carbon footprint is being reduced and pollution around the world is a major issue and is something we would like our children to become increasingly aware of.”
