Although our Solar Panels output has dropped recently due to the shorter days, it’s great to see we have offset our school’s carbon emissions by 1 ton since August with the production of almost 1000 kWh of electricity,
You can keep track of our production here.
We are delighted our planning permission application for 30m2 of Photovoltaic Panels has been granted by Galway Co Co, During the summer these panels will be fitted to the south facing roof of our building to further enhance our green energy rating.
The Department of Education and SEAI have concluded the Etendering process, and have appointed E.T. Burke Construction as the contractor to carry out our Deep Energy Retrofit. Everything is on schedule and we have moved out of the building this evening. As of Monday the 24th the work begins and is expected to be completed before the 22nd August. As the main school building is now a construction site, no unauthorised access is permitted until works are completed. Please note we will be based in the prefabs for the summer if you need to see us and are still available on 093 38203 and via email as usual,
