The 83 schools preparing to go solar in our region

SCHOOLS across our region will be some of the first to benefit from $97 million worth of funding kicked in by the State Government to help them go solar.

The Advancing Clean Energy Schools program, announced this morning by Education Minister Grace Grace, will be provided to 83 schools on the Darling Downs in a bid to and lessen the education sector's impact on the environment and cut its power bill.

"Kilcoy State High, Kingaroy State High, Stanthorpe State School and Toowoomba State High School (and 79 others in the region) will be part of the more than 800 schools over the next three years to have the installation of solar power and energy efficiency measures," Ms Grace said.

"Schools will be selected based on their energy consumption, student enrolments and supplier availability with the tender process requiring successful partners to use local suppliers where possible."

A breakdown of the $97 million program details how $40 million will go towards installing solar photo-voltaic systems and $57 million will be spent making schools more energy efficient.
