St Davids Eco City Project
The project is to install grid connected photo voltaic panels on part of the roof of the junior school in St Davids. Monitoring and display equipment in the school will provide the basis of project work for the pupils to study renewable energy and climate change issues, combined with a "hands on" solar fountain where the children can explore the effects of sunlight and shading, this is already funded and partially installed. The installation will form part of the St Davids Eco Trail which informs people about climate change, renewable technologies and biodiversity. It is vitally important that people can see the technology to reduce carbon emissions, and what is available and be bought "off the shelf". The panels will be visible from the road where it is intended to have an interpretation board and a site marker which refers to the eco trail leaflet and web site (functioning now). This will contain further information about the available technologies and where other examples can be seen, plus live readings of output figures from the monitoring equipment on the web site which will be displayed in the National Trust shop and possibly the St David's Tourist Information Centre.
