Partners & Supporters

We work closely with various organisations to make solar happen for schools.

We work with the Asset Management Unit and Directorate to facilitate installation of systems for public schools.

The Clovelly Community Bank is a local philanthropic community bank that gives up to 80% of it’s profits back to the community. For example, South Sydney High School has been successful in receiving funding for its Solar my School project in one of its sponsorship rounds.

We are a proud service provider for Ausgrid’s Power2U program to encourage customers in Sydney to adopt renewable energy and efficiency measures such as new solar power systems and LED lighting upgrades. Solar my School aims to help selected schools in 15 Sydney suburbs to install solar – it’s part of Ausgrid’s efforts to help its customers save on bills by accessing innovative demand management energy solutions.

Solar Buddy is a registered charity in Australia helping to reduce energy poverty for marginalised communities across the world by educating Australian school children. We proudly work with their Buddy2Buddy Schools program which allows Australian students to build SolarBuddy lights to send to fellow students in developing countries who do not have access to electricity for learning.

We have proudly partnered with Sydney Catholic Schools which allows this organisation to use our resources to roll-out solar to their 152 schools. As part of the partnership, the 18 Catholic Schools in the Eastern Suburbs are joining the program.

Purryburry Trust was established in 2011 to support environmental projects. The Trust has funded various projects over the years from habitat protection and restoration to species recovery and climate initiatives. It is delighted to be assisting schools’ capacity to repower with solar energy through the Solar my School program.


Regional Development Australia (Southern Inland NSW) is licensing the program in partnership with Wingecarribee Shire Council to support schools in this region with a pilot round kicking off in second half of 2020.

The Australia Climate Action Fund (ACAF) is a non-profit fund dedicated to tackling climate change. They finance new and innovative projects across the country to reduce Australia’s carbon footprint and secure a better future for the next generation. We are thrilled that ACAF members will now have the opportunity to help some of our schools fund solar panels for a brighter cleaner future.
