Forty schools will receive $250,000 in program funding to install solar panels. To support the installation of the solar panels, energy efficient improvements including lighting upgrades, timers and building controls will be implemented to reduce electricity consumption.
The solar installations and energy efficiency improvements will also provide learning tools to allow schools to incorporate renewable energy and energy efficiency into the curriculum.
Low Carbon Schools
Solar technology produces electricity without burning fossil fuels during generation.
By using electricity generated from solar panels schools will help reduce carbon emissions, working towards SA Government targets for efficiency and net zero emissions.
