Riverside School in Hebden Bridge has been shortlisted for an Award from the M&S Energy Fund. Riverside have asked for £12,500 to buy solar panels for their building.

If Riverside School wins the vote, then the Solar Panels will be a great benefit to our local school. And save over £2,000 per year on their electricity bill .

John Hairsine Chair of Riverside Governors said, "This project will bring 8,000 kwh of clean, free energy into the local community every year, cutting 4400 kilos of carbon dioxide, and providing the school with savings and an ongoing income. It will support first class teaching facilities and offer the best possible educational experience to local children now and in the future."

This is a national competition with regional heats. The projects with the most support - measured by votes - will be awarded funding.
