Engineering students at MidKent College’s Maidstone Campus have received an energy boost with the donation of state-of-the-art solar panel equipment.
The high-tech kit was donated to the College by Dartford firm Enevis, whose employee Paul Saunders, 39, from Sittingbourne, is currently studying for a higher national certificate.
Simon Foot, head of faculty for construction and building services, said: “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation, which will be of great use to our students.
“It will provide them with invaluable hands-on experience of working with this type of technology, which will stand them in good stead for the future.”
Gary Mayatt, Enevis managing director, said: “We are delighted MidKent College agreed to accept our solar panel demonstration system as we are passionate about teaching the benefits of renewable energy.
