A SECONDARY school in the Fens has unveiled an energy saving computer -- and a wind turbine large enough to power it.
St Clement's High School, Terrington St Clement, is one of 100 secondary schools and colleges across the country to use the system.
The school plans to use the equipment to teach the importance of energy conservation, both within the school and in the wider community.

Catherine Bank, director of specialist status at St Clement's, said: "We are delighted to have won such an innovative combination of modern, sustainable equipment.
"The equipment will support our expanding work with partner primary schools, be a real life example of eco-friendliness to our students and set the standard for our wider community."

The competition was run by RM, a supplier of information technology to education in the UK. Winners were picked for the way they intend to use the equipment.
The system uses up to 66 per cent less energy than standard computers. A typical secondary school with 220 computers running for most of the day could save as much as £9,000 on their fuel bill in three years.
Tim Pearson, RM's chief executive said: "We are delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for the next generation to learn about renewable energy in a positive and constructive way. After all, they are the ones that will ultimately be responsible for halting climate change before it is too late.
