Geelong High School is Moving Toward Environmentally Sustainable Education

Geelong High School is Moving Toward Environmentally Sustainable Education

Toward the end of 2016, Geelong High School began working towards an environmentally sustainable future.

How?

By installing a 100Kw rooftop solar system to alleviate reliance on grid electricity.

Commercial solar installation company, Todae Solar, http://www.todaesolar.com.au who have been rated as Australia’s leading commercial solar installer for a number of years, were brought on to complete the project. Working in conjunction with the school to erect the solar panels, the installation was completed very smoothly guaranteeing a sustainably sunny future on the horizon for Geelong High School.

With environmental sustainability and social awareness being increasingly important issues promoted to students, this solar installation is a strong step in the right direction. But on top of its benefits as a green alternative to grid electricity reliance, the 100Kw system is expected to produce 128,956kWh of energy in just its first year of production! This equates to covering around 32% of the school’s usual electricity bill which means that there are more resources freed up to develop educational initiatives.

It’s also going to help the State meet the Victorian Renewable Energy Targets (VRET) of 25% renewable energy generation by 2020 and 40% by 2025. Both of these targets are very achievable and Geelong High School is proud to be contributing its part in helping Victoria, Australia and the world toward a greener future!
