About this good practice
K&P energy is operating since 2012 a 352KWp solar energy (photovoltaic) plant, capable of covering the needs of about 90 houses, i.e. the needs of the nearby village. Since the commissioning of the project, committed to the values of corporate social responsibility, K&P Energy is open to the use of the project as location for educational excursions for school students, where, paying special attention to health and safety, they are shown around the plant and given short talk about its operation.
The construction cost of the project is estimated at 600.000 €. A small amount of the company’s budget is allocated each year to promote such actions. This is called “Corporate Social Responsibility Project” (costs about 200 € / excursion).
Evidence of success
Local schools were received in a number of occasions during the last 7 years; the exact numbers have not been recorded but the evidence of success is in the knowledge and familiarity with RES that young people are getting from the visits.
Potential for learning or transfer
Student education about renewable energy
