$336 million Green Vouchers for Schools programme

leave a comment »


Under the new programme, part of the Howard Government’s commitment to climate change action, funding of up to $50,000 is available to every school in Australia to help install rainwater tanks and solar hot water systems.

“Green Vouchers for Schools will help improve water and energy efficiency at schools across the country,” Mrs Mirabella said.

“This programme encourages awareness about energy and water consumption throughout the whole school community. By actively engaging students and their families, schools in the North-East can save water and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.”

Schools may choose whether to dedicate their funding to rainwater tanks, solar hot water system or both, depending on their individual needs.

“I encourage schools to carefully consider how they can make the most of this important Howard Government initiative by achieving the greatest water savings and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions possible,” Mrs Mirabella said.

Further information about Green Vouchers for Schools is available from http://www.environment.gov.au/greenvouchers or by phoning 1800 020 625. Schools can register their interest in redeeming their Green Voucher through the website.
