CASE STUDY – CAPITAL PROJECTS Balfron High Sustainable Energy Initiatives

Introduction

Balfron High Sustainable Energy InitiativesThis project was set up by pupils who were part of the Eco-schools group at Balfron High School.  They wanted to look at getting a source of renewable energy for the school and also look into ways of making the school more energy efficient. Initially the S6 pupils approached SCHRI to find out about different options of renewable energy available.  It was decided that wind turbines would be the most appropriate in this case.  The application to SCHRI was for a grant towards the cost of two 6Kw Proven turbines.  They were approved for £12,677.52.   The project was started by the pupils and staff at Balfron High School and is now been overseen by Stirling Council Children’s Services who contributed £10,580.89 towards the costs.  Children’s Services will also be responsible for the ongoing maintenance of the project.
