OVESCO Sunny Solar Schools (OSSS) have already successfully supported local generation of renewable energy having installed solar panels on the roofs of schools in Sussex. Previously OSSS has raised enough funds to complete the installation of 60kW of solar panels at King’s Academy Ringmer (an additional 30kW) and St John’s College, Brighton (30kW). Following this success, this second share offer aims to raise a minimum of £158,000 to install 140kW solar PV panels on at least five additional schools. OVESCO has pre-registered 16 Sussex schools to be eligible for the Government’s feed-in tariff1 . This gives us time to conduct feasibility studies, which will allow further schools to be included in the share offer, if they prove to be viable, increasing the investment needed.
