Fox Primary School

Fox Primary School shows its cunning with solar installation.

Challenge
To install an 18kWp installation on the flat roof of this primary school in Notting Hill, Joju Solar worked with the school to secure some of the last capital grants available, totalling 50% of the total cost.

“I’d have no hesitation in recommending Joju Solar. This was an exciting project for our school and unlike other projects we’ve carried out. This meant we needed an installer we could trust and understood the issues involved in working in a live school environment. Joju Solar installed our school’s PV system on time and on budget and worked in accordance with all our requirements. I found them helpful, professional and expert at what they did. Many thanks.” Paul Cotter, Headteacher

Solution
After much planning and discussions we decided to install the system over the half-term break so as to cause minimal disruption to pupil and school life. The project consisted of 98 PV modules connected to the 3-phase supply of the building. This allowed the installation team to carry out the project with little problems.

Rewards
By generating green electricity on their available roof space the school can now expect to save over 8 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions each year and reduce their electricity bills at the same time.
