Solar4Schools Winners Announced: Free Renewable Energy for UK Schools

Whew! We're finding it hard to keep up with the folks at SolarCentury. No sooner had they told us of their involvement in creating the UK's first solar powered pub, than we hear their announcement of the winners to the Solar4Schools initiative which we reported on here. Five lucky schools will benefit from a £20,000 (US$40,000) renewable energy system partially funded by Barclaycard Breathe. Solarcentury's Jeremy Leggett, who we previously interviewed here, had this to say:

"We are delighted with this new impetus for the Solar4Schools programme. We have already had hundreds of enquiries for the funding available, however, the new support from Barclaycard Breathe will ensure that more schools are able to meet the fund requirements more quickly. Access to this silent, clean, sustainable energy is easy, meanwhile it is a crucial vehicle for educating young people on the benefits of solar PV-generated electricity."
