Jockey Club SolarCare Programme is funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, with a view to promote the use of solar energy in Hong Kong as well as to develop a community service platform of renewable energy.
This programme is an active response to the Government’s recent Feed-in Tariff (FiT) policy. Its mission is to accelerate the application of solar energy within the local community to increase the use of solar energy and reduce carbon emissions in Hong Kong. At the same time, this programme will serve to connect green groups, NGOs, government departments, power companies, renewable energy experts and the Hong Kong public at large. It is hoped that this can help Hong Kong catch up with the global level of solar energy development and together we can build a Zero Carbon Hong Kong.
In the first phase of this programme, we shall partner with ten NGOs to install solar panels and have them connected to the FiT Scheme of the two power companies. A series of community education activities focusing on solar energy in Hong Kong will also be implemented.
