HBJS Is Going Green!

Over the summer holidays we have been very busy having solar panels put all around our school roofs. These, in total will provide the school with around about 60kWp of electricity (around 40% of our usage). This will cut around 13 tonnes of carbon going into the atmosphere per year, thus reducing the schools carbon footprint. The power the panels produce will eventually be available to see via our website, so staff, students and visitors will be able to see in real time how much electricity we are producing and using.
The company who supplied the solar panels will also be providing us with education workshops for students and staff to help increase our knowledge about energy usage and ways in which we can live more sustainably. We are really excited about our new solar panels and is the first step in the schools journey to being net zero.
