Solar water heating can deliver significant savings for your school in high hot water-use areas (such as hostels). Using solar water heating can also help reduce your school’s fossil fuel usage and educate students about the importance of efficiency and sustainability.

Schools can apply for installation grants to reduce the up-front costs of installing solar water heating systems.

For a limited time installations grants of 50% are available for certain school hostels and schools.

Installation grants are also available for unglazed solar water heating for swimming pools, as are feasibility grants to support informed decisions about whether solar water heating is a cost-effective solution for your property.

The grant is payable directly to schools from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority. School Admin can provide assistance in accessing this grant funding along with handling finance, tendering and installation processes. We provide this service free of charge.

We can also take care of the process and paperwork as well as seek additional funding on your behalf from local energy trusts and local/regional councils. School Admin can also help with Ministry of Education property requirements such as helping to access 5YA funding for projects funding by state school boards of trustees.

We can tailor a solution to meet your needs and budget all the way from free advice and support to a fully managed project. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Grant recipients must agree to the publication of information about their project.

See our Frequently Asked Questions page for further information and download the application for funding assistance form for full details on criteria before applying.

How to apply
Applications are received and assessed throughout the financial year as funding is available.

Currently the fund is heavily subscribed and applications are on hold until additional funding becomes available. However applications are still open for school hostels to receive 50% of their installation costs from the funding pool.
