News: Thomas Rotherham College goes green with new renewable energy system


Renewable energy solutions provider, Ecolution, recently completed the design and installation of photovoltaic and solar hot water panels at Thomas Rotherham College in Rotherham. The systems are designed for easy access by the sixth form students, to monitor performance for education purposes and provide hands-on experience of renewable energy technology. A photovoltaic panel and a solar hot water collector were installed as part of a major building project on site. "Developing sustainable sources of energy is fast becoming the most important technological challenge facing this generation," explained Maurice Patterson, finance director at Thomas Rotherham College. "By installing the solar hot water and photovoltaic panels, we are not only saving money on utilities bills but are also giving students first-hand experience of the latest renewable energy technologies. The college recently received a bronze award in the Eco-Schools programme for its focus on saving energy and sustainability." Ecolution’s director Alan Fry commented: "This was a project we were delighted to be involved with. Educating the next generation about the importance of clean, renewable energy sources and also the social and environmental impact of buildings is essential, ensuring the success and further development of renewable energy technology."
