Answer for RE:FIT - schools and solar panels

Answered By: 
The Mayor

We are on track to retrofit 200 schools through RE:FIT by 2016 with retrofit works complete or underway in  81 schools and a further 50 currently in the pipeline. The RE:FIT Programme Delivery Unit is actively promoting solar panels in schools through the support they are providing, but to date, no schools have fitted solar panels through the RE:FIT programme and there are no schools in the pipeline planning to do so. This is primarily due to economic viability.
