HKD COMMUNITY ENERGY 

INSTALLATION OF THE DOWNLANDS SCHOOL SOLAR PROJECT CELEBRATED FRIDAY 20 MARCH 2015.

This was the first project of HKD Energy, a Community Benefit Society whose aim is to increase the amount of renewable energy generated in in our area and to deliver benefits to the local community by demonstrating that community energy works.

Working in partnership with Downlands Community School, Hassocks, HKD Energy’s Downlands School Solar project is one of the largest school solar systems in the country:

  • £100,350 of community investment

  • 80kW of solar power (some 307 panels) on the roofs of the school and sports centre

  • Saving some 840 tonnes of carbon over the next 20 years

  • Significantly reducing the school’s energy costs

  • Enabling 6,900 pupils in coming years to learn about renewable energy first-hand

  • Supporting the school’s energy efficiency aims.
