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.
