Harrogate gas company CNG is hoping to help kids see the benefit of renewable energy sources.

Contract Natural Gas - known as CNG - want kids to feel like renewable technology, such as solar panels, are normal to have and use.

They have been fitting solar panels into schools so that they become used to seeing them around.

CNG also want to highlight the fact that the school will be able to save money and spend it on resources and facilities for them too.

As well as providing local schools with solar power they're going further afield to Kenya.

It's extremely cold and therefore leading to problems like dirty water, infections and pneumonia.

We will heat the water through renewables like solar.

They're working to help provide hot water for a school in the mountains north of Nairobi.

Ellis Hall from the company told us how they hoped that would impact children in North Yorkshire: "Being able to show the kids in the UK that the future of energy through solar to start with, is going to have a direct impact on the welfare of children's lives through renewables is going to be a much bigger impact.

"Hopefully that's going to be a real education piece for not just the kids, but the adults as well.

"We want to teach them about renewables so as they're growing up it's the norm for them.

"We want to link kids, energy and education together for the better."
