Sanyo awards two County Durham schools with 14-panel solar systems
Sanyo Component Europe has completed the installation of projects utilising its HIT1 solar modules at Rosa Street Primary School and Hamsterley Primary School in County Durham. The two schools were awarded the systems by Sanyo for their work in the Future Planets project a challenge where pupils are tasked with exploring the state of the planet in 25 years time if sustainable and non-sustainable choices are made.

The prize for winning the competition was a solar photovoltaics system comprising 14 Sanyo HIT HIP-215NKHE5 solar modules, which is expected to generate approximately 2,240kWh of energy a year. The installation of the systems is expected to cut energy bills and reduce the CO2 emissions of each school.

Colin Creggs, Headteacher at Rosa Street Primary School, said, The children did brilliantly to win the Recharging the Earth project. The school is extremely pleased to have the solar panels fitted and producing electricity. It will help immensely to reduce the carbon footprint of our building.
