British Gas has unveiled an unprecedented £15 million investment in solar technology for the nation's schools. The company will donate and install solar panels - worth up to £40,000 - in up to 750 schools in the UK. Each school will be able to generate its own free, green electricity, cutting as much as 20% of its annual electricity bill.
The schools receiving solar panels will also receive a British Gas smart meter, offering real time information so pupils can see the difference their solar panels are making. Finally, specially created Generation Green lesson plans will help teachers engage their pupils in learning about renewable energy, and schools will be able to track their performance against others and share tips and advice via a specially designed website.
