Historic goldfields school strikes solar gold with community-funded system

Source: The People's SolarChewton Primary School – located in the historic goldfields region in central Victoria – has struck gold as it received large financial support from the community to help install a 4kW rooftop solar system. Over $3,000 of online donations and over $2,000 of school fund-raising was raised as part of a project from The People’s Solar – a community-based approach that “crowd-sources” tax deductible donations to pay for solar panels, and then reinvests the savings from energy bills to support broader community goals.
