The University of New South Wales has just announced that they’ve signed an agreement with Origin Energy and Maoneng Australia for the off-site supply of solar power to UNSW as reported by Solar Panels UK.

It is planned that the university will get all of 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.

The agreement states that the University will get their power from Maoneng’s Sunraysia Solar Farm and it’s predicted that it will buy as much as 124,000 megawatts of renewable energy annually.
