When the outgoing Principal of Siena Catholic College in Sippy Downs Queensland announced his retirement at the end of 2016, he wanted to be able to leave behind a legacy item – an 80 kW solar system from Planet Ark Power, for the school and its students to benefit for years to come.
With 1,000 students onsite, the project had to be completed within WHS guidelines and accommodate logistical, scheduling and construction restrictions. Planet Ark Power was able to design and implement an integrated, end-to-end solution.
Planet Ark Power designed a rooftop solar system, consisting of 80 KW of rooftop solar using 308 solar panels and 3 inverters.
Anticipated to generate 120,000 kWh to mitigate against cost of future energy price rises saving an estimated $26,475 in annual energy costs. Estimated annual emission savings of 92 tonnes of carbon – the equivalent 200,000 kms travelled by car in a year.
