Green light for 471 solar panels at Pudsey school

A Pudsey school is set to boost its green credentials and lower its energy bills after receiving planing permission to install 471 solar panels.

Leeds City Council has granted planning permission for the new panels, which will be sited across the roof across the Crawshaw Academy campus off Robin Lane.

A council planning officer’s report says: “The proposed panels are to be positioned on pitched roof elements of the school, set back from the public highway and predominantly orientated to face away from residential properties.

“Given the separation distances to nearest public vantage points, visually the panels will be indistinguishable to the wider roofscape given their low profile.”

Solar electricity panels, also known as photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy and convert it into electricity that you can use in your home. By installing solar panels,¬†you can generate your own renewable electricity.
