The University of Adelaide has officially turned on its $7m Roseworthy Solar and Energy Storage Project aiming to power 42% of the campus’ animal hospitals, teaching labs, lecture theatres, offices, research facilities and more.

The University of Adelaide funded the project from a $778,500 dollar grant from the South Australian Renewable Technology Fund. Within its first tests they managed to exceed expectations with nearly 90% of its power covered by solar energy.
