Across all 4 major regions
Commencing December 2020
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.
The systems on Peg’s Creek, Baynton West, Millars Well, Tambrey and Karratha primary schools are now all commissioned!
Karratha SHS nearly finished too. We’ve been installing a whopping 225kW system (that’s 500+ solar panels!) throughout June.
We’ll be installing solar on 11 Pilbara schools all up — find out what other schools are involved here.
ABC Pilbara visited us at Baynton West Primary School in late April to check on our progress and ask the Year 6 students what they thought about solar.
The verdict? The enthusiastic students were all excited to share their knowledge about this important source of energy and thrilled their new system would help the environment.
Nulsen, Castletown and Munglinup primary schools received their new rooftop solar systems in March, where our teams installed 73 panels across the three schools.
We’ll be installing more systems across the Goldfields Esperance region from July.
We kicked off our Solar Schools program in mid-December with the first two of 30 school installations taking place at Scaddan and Condingup primary schools in the Goldfields Esperance region.
