That’s why a Liberal Nationals Government will help schools get back in control of sky rocketing electricity costs by investing in solar panels for every eligible Victorian public school.
Under a Liberal Nationals Government, Kingston’s public schools without solar will be eligible to receive solar and battery systems as well as grants of $10,000 to assist with implementation costs.
Approximately half of Victoria’s government schools are without solar and are currently missing out on the opportunity to cut their energy bills by combining solar systems and battery storage where viable with energy efficient lighting, heating, cooling and light sensors.
This program will provide over 700 Victorian public schools with solar, which also includes a target of having all public schools in the City of Kingston equipped with solar photovoltaic systems by 2025.
Participating schools will also be wired to be “Virtual Power Plant” ready - laying the foundation of Victoria’s schools generating, storing and releasing energy during school holidays and other periods of peak grid demand.
A Liberal Nationals Government will get renewables right and ease skyrocketing energy bills for schools in the City of Kingston – meaning less money spent on keeping the lights on and more money towards educating our kids.
