Gospel Oak Primary School provides education for approximately 460 children. The school recognised they have very high bills and they wanted to become more efficient and do more to help children learn about environmental issues, and practical ways of being more environmentally friendly to fit in with their eco school ethos.
Energy Saving on Fridges and freezers
Fridges and freezers are on all the time so the cost of running them over a year can be high. To reduce the running costs the best way can be to install SavaWatt technology. When the thermostat on a fridge or freezer switches on the motor to pump the refrigerant around the system, full power is required to start the motor. However, once the motor is running, full power is no longer needed. The SavaPlug senses this and reduces the flow of electricity to match the actual requirements.
