Analyse your school's solar data

10 Investigating energy usage KS2, KS3

Many schools have photovoltaic panels which produce energy from sunlight. These panels reduce the school's electricity consumption from the National Electricity Grid and reduce the school's carbon emissions, as electricity produced from solar panels produces very little carbon. Solar panels also save schools money.

This downloadable worksheet uses the data from one of our Energy Sparks schools to explore how much energy can be provided by solar panels and how much this might cost.
