A Kings Langley school is already reaping the rewards of installing solar panels earlier this year The Rudolf Steiner School decided to go green by installing 21 solar photovoltaic cells on the west end of the main school block roof in March.
The panels, which do not need direct sunlight to generate electricity, are already paying dividends for the school by generating cash as well as reducing their energy costs.
Estates manager Nick Rayment said: " The panels have only been in place since March and with the FIT (Feed in Tariff) government scheme, the school has already banked £470 from electricity generated through the panels."
