Three Academies on the East Coast are reaping the rewards of investing in green technology.
In July 2013, the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust invested approximately £92,000 on
installing energy efficient technologies in six of its Academies.
The Skegness Infant Academy, the Skegness Junior Academy and the Mablethorpe Primary
Academy all received low-energy lighting and boiler management systems which reduce fuel consumption.
It was anticipated that these lighting and heating improvements would generate savings of over £6000 per year across the three Academies however the results show that the
improvements are saving over £7000 per year.
Sir Barry Day, OBE, Chief Executive of the GDFT, said: “UK Energy Partners has installed the best possible energy efficiency technologies within these three Academies on the East Coast.
The savings have exceeded our expectations and this means that the money we save can be
used elsewhere to directly benefit pupils.
