During the recent Labour Party conference Jon Cruddas MP expressed his support for a Friends of the Earth campaign to help London schools save thousands of pounds by installing solar power.

Friends of the Earth estimates that schools could each save up to £8000 per year by going solar – more money to spend on libraries, playgrounds and trips. They would also help to tackle climate change by reducing carbon emissions, and provide an opportunity for children to learn about clean energy.
