School cuts bills with wind power
A Lincolnshire primary school has found a novel way of cutting down on its electricity bills.

The Langtoft School, near Bourne, is generating power with a six kilowatt wind turbine on the site.

The school received 11,000 from the government for the turbine which could cut energy bills by 3,000 a year.

Pupils are shown how much energy the turbine has generated and carbon emissions have been cut each day with a special display inside the school.

Head teacher James McCullough said: "As far as I know we're the first primary school in Lincolnshire to have a wind turbine.

"It's a great idea. It is generating electricity for the school and so saving in our energy bills."
