Chester Community Energy Ltd announce winners of their schools' sustainability competition
Chester Community Energy Ltd are delighted to announce that the “The Light Savers” team from Upton-by-Chester High School have won our Sustainability Competition for state-funded secondary schools in Cheshire West and Chester this year.
The Light Savers, a group of year 9 students, guided by their Head of Geography, provided a fantastic entry for an LED lighting project for one of their classrooms. They also made a very engaging video on the benefits of LED lighting to accompany their entry.
Chester Community Energy Ltd aims to reduce carbon emissions in our area by developing renewable energy schemes and encouraging energy efficiency. Upton-by-Chester High School received £1000 to spend on their winning project. Each member of the winning team also received a £20 gift voucher to spend in Chester and an invitation to participate in a Chester Community Energy Directors’ meeting.
The prizes are awarded from the Chester Community Energy Ltd Community Benefit Fund. This fund has been set up by our collective membership and is funded directly from the returns from their investments in our solar energy projects.
And the winning project has already been implemented - Cool and energy-efficient lighting!
