Solar Energy Installation Begins
It is very important that we acknowledge the beginning of our solar energy installation which catapults us to having the largest solar installation of any school in Australia. After an extensive investigation of the environmental, financial and social benefits, we made the decision to invest significantly into solar energy. The College Board is to be particularly commended on their great vision and support of this extraordinary project. We anticipate meeting approximately 60% of our energy needs through this initiative which has both immediate and long term benefits. We will continue to be providing updates on the installation, however this week saw the arrival of the mounting braces for the roof as well as our first of over 1400 panels. Every conceivable and usable space has been utilised to capture the energy of the great renewable energy source, the sun. The following article is one of the many media releases on our newest project. I look forward to sharing with you more of this emerging and wonderful initiative. We are very proud.
