Sidmouth College’s sunny delight
THE Sid Valley Energy Action Group (SVEAG) has expressed its delight at the successful installation of solar panels at Sidmouth College
Leaders are so impressed they’ve created an award to encourage green-minded youngsters to come up with sustainable energy projects.
The SVEAG aims to promote energy efficiency and renewable energy sources and has hailed the panels “an excellent example” of the co-operation between them and partners in the community.
Talks commenced a few years ago about how SVEAG could work with the college, resulting in successful exhibitions there like a recent Green Transport event.
Other projects have been identified where SVEAG can work closely with the college, to increase the efficiency of the buildings, create awareness and interest amongst the students and help to keep the bills down.
