Every school across the country is to have solar panels installed to help reduce energy costs.

One hundred per cent of the cost will be made available through the Department of the Environment’s Climate Action Fund and the works will be carried out under the summer works programme next year.

The 2021 Climate Action Plan set a target of 51% reduction by 2030 for schools. The solar panels  will also help the education sector meet its emissions reductions targets.

The initiative is expected to generate at least 24MW of renewable generating capacity and schools will be able to apply in the coming months.
