Solar systems for schools

Education facilities are hubs for experimentation, advancement and pushing social change. Operating during the day, the campus will benefit from energy production, reduce its carbon consumption and save a significant amount of money.

As well as financial benefits, switching to solar power provides a cultural shift in the way students think about their carbon consumption. We’ve delivered solar power projects on close to 1,000 schools, Universities and TAFE Colleges across the country.

Our approach to installing solar systems for schools:

  • step01

    Step one

    First we consider the site’s grid electricity consumption and physical aspects of the property including solar power production potential.

  • step02-2

    Step two

    Our in-house photovoltaic engineers design the solar system to suit the physical constraints of the site and maximise solar electricity production to optimise financial returns.

  • step03

    Step three

    We manage all projects from start to finish. This includes approvals, construction, training and O&M.

  • step04

    Step four

    We manage applications for relevant government incentives and solar feed-in tariffs.

  • step05

    Step five

    We operate, maintain and monitor your solar power system to ensure it reaches its peak performance.



    Enabling solar power

    Our client’s vary in size, motivation and industry but a common thread is the steadfast process we apply to every project. This plan is simple and transparent and ensures everyone is well-informed during the whole project. When we do this, we achieve real value for our clients – whether it’s through financial returns, meeting a sustainability target or maximising solar power yields.
