Pupils Pitch Energy Saving Ideas

Pupils from Sneyd Green Primary School have won eco funding for their school after presenting their energy saving ideas before a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style panel.

Rebecca Dawes and Yasmin Kok were hand-picked by their teachers to work on a project about saving energy and cash, as part of the Low Carbon Schools scheme. The pair gave a presentation on their energy efficient ideas to a panel, composed of professionals from Balfour Beatty and Stoke-on-Trent City Council.

10 year old Yasmin said: “We found out the heating was coming on at 3am, when it was not needed.

“We put up posters asking people to switch off lights and computers.

“We are also going to take an assembly talking about how to save energy.”

Ideas Working Wonders

Their ideas helped to lower the school’s energy rating from 114 to 111, even though a flood hit the school’s heating supply. Until they undertook commercial boiler repairs, they had six industrial sized dehumidifiers and six boilers constantly on for six weeks.

The scenario shows that commercial and industrial boiler repairs are required as fast as possible if your heating system gives out, otherwise you could be paying out large amounts in energy bills. If your commercial or industrial boilers are faulty then make use of Ideal Heat Solutions’ commercial boiler repairs London and UK.
