The federal government’s National Solar Schools Program (NSSP) has meant that dozens of schools have been lucky enough to get the opportunity to install solar power systems which offer both an environmental and educational benefit.
Applications for the National Solar Schools Program were closed on June 30, 2013. SAE Group have been involved with this program and the installation process for several ‘Solar Schools’. This program provided many benefits to the local school community, including
- A reduction in operating costs for the school – meaning more money could be invested into school resources
- It’s educational value, where renewable energy could be seen in action
- The schools involved in the NSSP were able to reduce school community’s carbon footprint
This was a very beneficial program that built great reward for those schools involved. If you would like to see the National Solar Schools Program re-established, please contact you Federal Member, as well as the Education Minister, Industry Minister and the Environment Minister.
