Hoe Valley is a new secondary school and leisure facility located in Woking.

Drakes were commissioned to design and install a solar system to achieve BREEAM credits and comply with the London Plan.

The decision was made to combine a mixture of a south, west and east facing panels to give the building more useable energy throughout the day. A monitoring portal will allow stakeholders and pupils to see live generation, which also acts as an educational tool.
