New Zealand Solar Schools scheme launched

Submitted by on February 19, 2014 – 7:51 am

Claire solar hotwater1Solar Schools officially launched New Zealand’s first solar crowd funding initiative for schools on Campbell Live on 17th February. Richmond’s Henley School is the first to join Solar Schools, and now has Nelson’s biggest school solar power system, which will help them reduce their operational energy costs.

Schools get free power and curriculum support while communities invest in their school’s future.
It’s a win-win.

This is a joint project between Nelson Environment Centre, Solar City and Nelson Building Society.

As well as a great financial investment for schools, solar is part of a clean energy future. The Solar Schools’ team also delivers energy curriculum topics and teacher support to help schools integrate solar and energy into the classroom.

A number of schools in the Top of the South are already looking at producing their own power with Solar Schools.

If you would like your school to be the next to go solar, contact us for a free energy assessment so we can work through what would work best for your school.
