Solar for Schools - building a low carbon future one school at a time

11/07/2024 5pm - 5:45pm
Online event (Zoom webinar)

In this online discussion, we’ll speak to Solar for Schools community benefit society representatives to look at their successful model of installing solar panels on UK schools, the urgent need for funding, and the benefits the panels provide.

We will hear how 200+ schools around the UK have already benefitted from solar panel installation that not only provides them with a cheaper and cleaner energy supply but also gives them access to an education programme that promotes sustainability to students.

We’ll learn about the Solar for Schools funding model and how bondholders are vital. On the launch of their latest investment bond offer, we’ll explain how everyday investors are taking action with their money to support this pioneering community-focused organisation, and in the process helping to inspire the policymakers of the future.

During the discussion, we will also look at the overall changing landscape for community-owned clean energy in the next five years and how investors will play a key role in shaping that.

The audience will have the opportunity to put questions to the panel.
