"A strategy adopted by the Australian and Queensland Governments to reduce the carbon footprint of schools involved installing solar energy systems on selected schools. The objective of the Queensland Solar Schools initiative (2001-2008) was to provide schools with an educational resource that would raise awareness about renewable energy technology while reducing school electricity usage costs...The central aim of this research was to evaluate the efficacy of the Queensland Social Schools initiative by investigating whether schools with solar PV installations came to view and use energy differently from schools without renewable energy technology"--Abstract.
