Solar PV in ACT schools

ITP Renewables was engaged by the ACT Education Directorate in 2019 to develop tender documentation outlining the technical specifications and contractual responsibilities to increase the size of photovoltaic systems at schools across the ACT.

Initially 10-20kW systems, this project would see the systems expanded to near 100kW to allow the Directorate to access the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. As a government organisation, the Directorate was able to benefit from ITP’s experience in large commercial scale photovoltaic system development to assist in shaping the project to produce the best outcome.

The project documentation helps to ensured that the system installation would be of the highest quality, installed to meet all relevant standards and that the contractual obligations of the contractor were clearly outlined and understood. ITP are always excited to see projects bringing renewable energy into focus in Australian schools.
