IS YOUR SCHOOL ON THE LIST? 178 schools to get solar panels

THE 178 schools set to receive solar panels under a $97 million state government plan have been revealed.

Phase one of the school audits, under the Palaszczuk Government's Advancing Clean Energy Schools Program (ACES), has determined 212 state schools will receive solar panels.

And 34 of those schools in Metropolitan, Central Queensland, Darling Downs and the South East area have already had solar panels installed.

Ms Grace said the program would see almost 34,000 panels installed across Queensland state schools by July 2020.

"Not only are we going to save millions of dollars, we are also helping reduce our impact on the environment and support local jobs in the process," she said.

"Just this week schools from the Gold Coast to Mackay and out to Toowoomba are installing solar panels on the rooves of classrooms and school buildings."

"The energy cost savings realised by this program when fully implemented is expected

to be approximately $10 million per year."

Minister for Education Grace Grace said the government was on track to deliver solar panels to 800 state schools.
Minister for Education Grace Grace said the government was on track to deliver solar panels to 800 state schools.

Ms Grace said the government was "well on track" to deliver panels to more than 800 state schools and more than 3795 solar panels are now installed with more than 1400 installed in October alone.

"Importantly, the rollout of the ACES program is expected to support 320 jobs."

The second and third phases will roll out in 2020-21 and 2020-22 respectively.
