Worldwise Limited have been successful in obtaining a £24,589.30 grant from the Low Carbon Building’s Programme, Phase 2 grant funding scheme. The sum represents a 50% contribution towards the installation of a 9.72kWp (72m2) photovoltaic array on the roof of a two-classroom extension to St Mary’s Primary School, Dorchester, Dorset. A further 10% contribution is to be made by Dorset County Council.

This extension is the first phase of a 3-stage development strategy for the school. The school plan to export most of the energy produced and use the revenue as an income source.

The sustainable development approach to the scheme was an aspiration of the school’s governors from the outset and the whole design team worked hard to achieve an affordable solution within normal DFES budgetary constraints.
