Amaroo Rooftop Solar PV System

Largest roof mounted solar panel system in the ACT

Amaroo School 600kW rooftop solar PV system was first installed in 2015 and remains the largest rooftop solar PV project in the ACT. 

The system includes 310 solar panels, and generates $25,000 per year of school funding. 

The project secured a 20 year feed-in-tariff with the ACT Government in 2015 and contributes to their 100% renewable electricity by 2020 target.

Amaroo School has a number of additional renewable energy and sustainability initiatives including: solar hot water panels, natural ventilation systems, a wind turbine which also generates electricity, and water storage tanks.
