As one the most recognised brands in Irish education publishing, Folens has been providing quality education content for teachers for over 65 years. Folens began their sustainability journey with UrbanVolt in 2017 and replaced all the lights in their building using the Light as a Service model. Then continued the partnership with UrbanVolt by installing a solar array on their rooftop and saw the benefits within the first few months of going live.

Our electricity bill has been reduced by 48%.
