Crayke C of E Primary commissioned York-based Green Building Renewables to install it over the summer holidays.
The solar panels promise to reduce the school’s carbon emissions by using renewable solar energy and save on energy costs.
They will also educate children about renewable energy and encourage others to consider similar installations.
Headteacher Ms Judi Jackson said: “We believe it is our responsibility to provide our students not only with knowledge but also with values that will serve them well in the future.” These solar panels demonstrate our commitment to sustainability and are a practical one Example of how we can reduce our environmental impact.”
For the installation, Green Building Renewables worked with the school to design and implement the solar panel system.
The project was funded by a government grant for energy efficiency projects, which included converting the school’s lighting to LED.
Chris Delaney, managing director of Green Building Renewables, said: “The government, local education authorities and school boards all have a responsibility to make school buildings fit for the future.”
“Installing renewable technologies and increasing the energy efficiency of schools are just two of the ways schools can be transformed into better learning environments for students.”
