Project overview

As part of our Solar Schools Program, we’re partnering with the Department of Education to install and commission rooftop solar on schools within our regions.

Power bills take up a large part of a school’s operational budget. The switch to solar will slash their energy expenditure by approximately 27%, freeing up considerable funds for other projects.

    What's happening now

    Installations under way

    After awarding the contract to install 29 Solar Schools rooftop solar systems to MPS, we kicked off the project in mid-December with the first two installations taking place at Scaddan and Condingup primary schools in the Goldfields Esperance region.

    More on their way

    We will continue to roll out installations across the Goldfields Esperance and Pilbara regions in the early months of 2021.
