Burnham school's solar power plans win council approval

A Burnham-On-Sea school is set to be partially powered by sunlight after local councillors this week gave it the go-ahead to install new solar panels.

St Joseph's Primary School has applied to Sedgemoor District Council to install two sets of solar panels on the roof of its buildings in Oxford Street.

The application, which was submitted by the Board of Governors, has been granted by the council - enabling the solar panels to be overlaid on the roof tiles.

The school hopes to save potentially thousands of pounds a year in electricity charges from the environmentally-friendly system.
