Over the past few years, the demand for solar panels in schools, colleges, Universities and other educational establishments has grown. In fact, iGen have worked on several projects with educational institutions of various sizes from Primary Schools to red brick Universities across the county. With benefits including a reduction in the cost of energy bills plus a reduction in carbon emissions, the switch to solar is win-win. The switch to renewables sends a great message to pupils too, inspiring them with the latest in technology and teaching them how they too can look after their world.

Sharply increasing electricity costs and large amounts of unused roof space provided by educational facilities make a solar panel system a solid investment. Whether your educational establishment is looking to reduce costs, decrease its carbon footprint or secure its future energy supply, iGen provides custom solar pv installations which help you achieve your objectives.
Solar for schools can provide a substantial return on investment. Whilst the end of the Feed-in Tariff made the financial justification of residential installations more challenging to financially justify – compared to buying renewable energy from the grid – it’s a different story for solar for schools.
The reason is a combination of cheaper solar PV technology, a 25-year fixed-cost for solar energy generation, minimal maintenance of the solar PV system after installation, and continuing rises in the cost of grid supplied electricity. Altogether, the result is solar energy that’s around 60-70% cheaper than buying from the National Grid. Additional enticements are PPA’s and financial solutions to help manage or eradicate upfront costs.
Within the next ten years, energy costs are predicted to double. Solar panels for schools and educational facilities are a smart energy solution that will effectively allow your establishment to forward buy your electricity at a set price of around five to six pence per unit. This significantly reduces the financial exposure to energy price rises which will make financial forecasting and planning a lot easier.
