The Government is installing solar electricity in schools as part of efforts to cut energy bills. 


Education Minister Ronald Thwaites has indicated that a pilot project is to begin this September.


Speaking at a post Sectoral Debate press conference last week Thwaites stressed that the Government is spending billions per annum on electricity at educational institutions. 


He said this is a serious situation which has to be addressed. 

The education minister said this project is being led through a public-private partnership. 


He said it has been estimated that the introduction of solar energy could result in a 20 per cent saving for schools. 


Thwaites said schools have to get better at monitoring their energy usage and practice conservation.
