Pinjarra Primary and WA Agriculture College to welcome new solar panels as part of environmental campaign
In a move towards a greener future, Pinjarra Primary School and WA Agriculture College Harvey will receive new solar panels courtesy of a State Government program.
Both schools successfully applied for the solar panels under the latest round of the Schools Clean Energy Technology Fund.
The SCETF aims to help public schools save on their power bills and lower carbon emissions, helping them to transition towards a greener, cleaner energy future.
Murray-Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke said it was part of the McGowan Government’s commitment to reducing the impact public schools have on the environment.
“This is fantastic news for Pinjarra Primary School and WA Agriculture College Harvey — they’ll save on their power bills and reduce their carbon emissions,” Ms Clarke said.
“This also provides Pinjarra Primary School and WA Agriculture College Harvey with an opportunity to teach students about renewable technologies.
“I’m looking forward to visiting Pinjarra Primary School and WA Agriculture College Harvey and seeing their new solar panels in place.”
The schools are among 96 others across the State that were successful in round two of the program.
In all, 84 schools successfully applied to receive solar panels in round one, including Brunswick Junction Primary School and Harvey Primary School.
