Solar power and Sustainable Challenge for IJburg College

On November 19, IJburg College celebrated the almost 500 solar panels on the roof of the school. Students and teachers had breakfast together with parties that made the project possible: the province of North Holland, the municipality of Amsterdam, the Sustainability Fund, energycorporation Zuiderlicht and Zon&Co.

The solar panels deliver more than 57.000 kWh green energy and financial return for investors. Moreover, they challenge students and teachers to think, calculate, discuss, philosophising and reflect. On a screen, students can see and monitor the solar energy produced by the panels.
