Weston College going greener

WESTON College in going greener after installing a biomass boiler and a rainwater-harvesting tank to help keep its fuel and water bills low.

The technology was set up in the centre for construction and engineering excellence (CECE) centre.

The hot water and space heating are now being powered by the biomass boiler, which is fuelled by wood pellets from renewable sources. The rainwater-harvester is collecting water now used to flush the CECE’s Locking Road campus toilets.

Courses in subjects including solar panel installation have been over-subscribed as construction firms and individuals explore new ways of working. The courses are being supported by employers across the building services engineering sector and have been approved by SummitSkills, the Sector Skills Council for building services engineering.
