Solar Schools Program

The Solar Schools Program brought to you by bhive environmental and supported by electricity retailer, Powershop, provides the opportunity to have a photovoltaic solar array installed at no cost to the school.

Schools will need to encourage members of the community to switch their electricity account to Powershop. This could be a term long campaign to encourage parents, grandparents or school groups to make the switch. For each person that switches their electricity provider to Powershop, Powershop will make a financial contribution towards the cost of installing a solar panel system. When enough people have switched their provider, the school will own a renewable energy generating asset.
