Uniquely the school will sell back to the National Grid any electricity generated while the school is closed to keep running costs to a minimum.
Ipswich based, Barnes Construction has installed the equipment in the grounds of the school – and this is just one environmental feature incorporated into the design of the £1.9 million Suffolk County Council project.
