Solar Schools is a national competition to help schools 'Run on Sun'.
In 2019, 5 schools will have 5 solar photovoltaic arrays installed, and will be able to generate free, clean, renewable power right from their rooftop. At the weekends and during the summer holidays when there is less demand for electricity in the school, Community Power will purchase this excess power, that would otherwise be lost.
Congratulations to the winners in 2019:
- St Munchin’s College, co. Limerick
- Scoil Iosagain, Upperchurch National School, Co. Tipperary
- Scoil Naomh Eoin, Innis Meain, Co. Galway
- St Colemans College, Claremorris, Co. Mayo
- St Colmcille’s College, Knocklyon, Dublin 16
Details of next years competition will be announced in the summer term, 2019. Watch this space.
