New green school boasts low carbon features

New green school boasts low carbon features
A newly constructed primary school in Hull that was opened recently boasts a variety of eco-friendly features.

According to the Hull Daily Mail, Green Way primary school is the first in the country to have two wind turbines powering it.

Ground-source heating and the use of recycled rainwater also contribute to the environmental credentials of the £4.3 million school.

As a result, the facility is expected to save around £3,000 a year on gas, electricity and water bills, the news provider states.

Headteacher Elizabeth Wilson commented: "We wanted to reflect what we want to do in terms of developing and sustaining resources and the children know we are working towards Green Flag status so we chose the name Green Way."

A school in Northern Ireland was recently awarded an A rating for its energy performance certificate as a result of its biomass boiler, insulation and solar panelling.
