Possible World First Announced By Australian University

You may be interested to read that the University of New South Wales (UNSW) has recently announced the signing of an agreement with Origin Energy and Maoneng Australia for the offsite supply of solar power to the university. It is hoped that the university will derive all its energy needs from solar power by 2020 and that it believes it will be the first university in the world to be carbon neutral for all its energy from such a source.

The agreement will mean that the university will be deriving all its energy from the Maoneng’s Sunraysia Solar Farm. It is forecast that it will buy as much as 124,000 megawatts of renewable energy every year.

Many Australians certainly seem to be keen to take up solar panel installations, as it is believed that the first month of 2018 saw more solar panel installations on rooftops in the country than any previous January. Of course, Australia is renowned for its sunshine and therefore there may well be a number of people who feel that it would be beneficial to maximize the sunshine by having solar panels fitted.

Here in the UK, there do not appear to be as many home owners having solar panels fitted to their roofs as there were two or three years ago. It will be interesting to see what happens in this respect for the remainder of 2018.

Here at Solar Panels UK we will continue to keep our readers up to date with any interesting solar power projects that come to our attention throughout 2018 and beyond. Over the years, we have commented on many interesting solar panel uses such as on the back of rucksacks to enable walkers to charge up their mobile phones, solar panels on public car ports that can be used to help charge up cars, solar panel road surfaces and solar panels on ambulances
