Jewish dayschool Moriah College has been allocated $80,000.

The Coalition’s Flagship Solar Schools program provides funding so that schools around the country can invest in solar energy and generate clean electricity to be used on-site or returned to the grid.

“Flagship Solar Schools is a great initiative which provides a practical example for students of the importance of renewable energy at the same time as it combats climate change,” Mr. Turnbull said.

“This program will have a tangible impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  And there is an invaluable educational aspect to this as well, since it illustrates that our future energy needs will increasingly have to come from renewable sources, such as the sun.”
