The Australian Government's Green Vouchers for Schools is committed to helping schools take practical action to tackle climate change and conserve precious water supplies. The Government is introducing a new more flexible initiative that will replace the current Australian Government's Green Vouchers for Schools Program.
Under the new National Solar Schools Program, every school in Australia is eligible to apply for grants of up to $50,000 to install 2 kilowatt solar panels and a range of energy and water efficiency measures, such as:
- lighting upgrades
- sky lights
- shade awnings
- solar hot water systems, and
- rainwater tanks
This new program allows schools to choose the most effective way to meet their energy and water efficiency goals.
