Four schools have already signed up to a scheme which will see them benefit from solar panel installations.
This pilot scheme see's schools displaying a website with empty panels on it. Through fund raising - selling the 'blank solar panel squares' to family, friends and parents work colleagues, 'panels' get filled in.
Each 'tile' costs £5 with each £1 raised generating £3 in energy savings.
The schools will also be able to use the solar panels in an educational exercise.
