KNOWLE-based company JDS Associates are doing their bit for the environment by encouraged local school children to think green – and supplying them with renewable energy teaching aids.

The consultants, who work in the sustainable energy sector, saved pounds at Christmas by sending out e-cards instead of paper ones. Now the have used the cash saved to buy kits with miniature wind turbines and a solar PV system for youngsters at Knowle CofE Primary School and Dorridge Junior School.

The kits, supplied by Eco Style (www.ecostyle.co.uk ) help pupils see for themselves how variations in the strength of the wind and sunlight, as well as the number of blades and gearing on the turbines, affect the quantity of electricity generated by the equipment.
