Project: 400 solar panels for Dapto High School
Donations over $2 are fully tax deductable and spent entirely on this project.
As part of the 60th celebrations, our school has taken on the challenge of raising $55k to install 400 solar panels on the roof of E Block.
Why are we doing this?
To improve the learning outcomes of our students. On some days, students are being taught in classrooms that reach in excess of 40 degrees. The school’s power bills are horrendous. With solar panels on the roof, the school can work towards heating and cooling classrooms in a sustainable manner.
Our time frame: June 2018
We only have a window opportunity of 9 months to take up the NSW Governments generous offer of matching schools $1:$1 to install solar panels on the roof of our school. We need $55k by June 2018. Sustainability
The 400 panels should produce > 60% of our current daily electricity usage. During weekends and holidays, excess power will be sold back to our supplier. Each panel cost $250 and has an estimated productive life of 40 years. Demonstrating a responsible approach to sustainability is a school and community priority.
This is not a dream.
The project has begun, and already over $3,000 has been donated with the total still growing!
We will keep you updated with the progress of the project via the school’s website and newsletter.
