Solar panels turn school into a shining example
Pupils are set to reap the benefits at a primary school which has taken a further step to being eco-friendly

Oakley Vale Primary School, Corby, had 60,000 worth of solar panels installed on its roof to reduce the schools carbon footprint and energy bills.

Headteacher Michael Deane-Hall said: We are a new school which opened in 2008 there are various sustainable systems in the school, we have a biomass heating system which doesnt run off gas or oil but wood chips from the Boughton estates.

We also do rain water harvesting at school as well for water for toilet flushing. And we have a computer controlled natural ventilation system which manages the temperature.

From our point of view it is fantastic to add to the sustainable systems we have here.

We are probably one of the most eco-friendly schools there is.

The equipment was provided by Northamptonshire County Councils Energy and Carbon Management Team.
