A school in Cornwall may be able to pursue cheap energy rates as it has installed a wind turbine in its grounds.
Funds from the Green Energy for Schools scheme, run by the Co-operative, were used to erect the 15-metre turbine at Goonhavern Primary School and wind conditions can be tested by the children using handheld devices.
Over £1 million has already been spent installing solar panels on 100 UK schools, while a similar sum is to be spent adding to the tally and experimenting with other forms of clean energy generation such as ground source heat pumps and biomass boilers.
Sarah Klueter, the Co-operative's senior community manager, said: "By switching on the wind turbine, Goonhavern Primary is helping to educate the next generation about climate change while setting an excellent example to other schools, businesses and homes in Cornwall."
Onshore wind farms are frequently unpopular in the UK due their visual impact on the surrounding landscape.
