Solar Schools Program

Saving schools money by installing solar panels

Savings on electricity bills will pay for a new school solar system in 5 years. Savings for the next 20 years can be invested in better school facilities and programs.

We use school electricity bills, aerial maps and advanced modelling tools to identify the most cost-effective solar system for each school.

If our efforts are successful, we will help establish low interest loans for schools from community investors and Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group's Renewable Energy Fund. Loans will be repaid from savings on electricity bills, ensuring there is no impact on school finances.
