Sandwich Technology School

Sustainable living for students

The ambition of Sandwich Technology School was to increase energy efficiency and promote sustainable living to the staff and students. After a survey and consultation, we installed a 5kW wind turbine on a 15m freestanding tower. 

Students benefitted from the web linked energy display in the school reception, an excellent learning resource that also produced energy yield data.

Achievements

  • The school’s application for an LCBP Phase II grant was successful
  • Access to our Education Pack designed for Key Stages 1 - 4
  • The wind turbine generated an estimated 8,700 kWh per year
  • The estimated carbon dioxide savings were approximately 5 tonnes per year
