MARKET SPECIFIC SOLAR
A SMARTER OUTCOME FOR OUR SCHOOLS
Planet Ark Power are leading providers of innovative solar PV, battery storage and microgrid solutions for schools and educational facilities across Australia.
Our solar PV solutions are designed to be financially attractive and maximize solar generation so that they consistently meet your current and future energy needs. This provides school administrators with long-term protection from rising energy costs, saves you money on your energy bills and helps reduce the environmental impact of your campus.
We have a track record of partnering with schools to deliver commercial solar solutions as well as clean energy strategy and our 16 satisfied customers include Bayside College (197.67kW), Cranbourne Park Primary School (99kW), Matthew Flinders Anglican College (492kW) and Siena Catholic College (80kW).
With energy costs representing a significant operational cost to schools and education facilities, combined with the recent volatility in the National Electricity Market, school administrators and school boards are turning to low-risk strategies and proven and reliable renewable solutions like solar PV and batteries.
Schools can lead and accelerate change for our planet by incorporating clean energy into their business and the curriculum. Schools, campuses and educational facilities that are well-suited for solar PV have the following characteristics:
Facilities and amenities buildings have large open roof spaces.
A consistent load profile.
Energy consumption occurs during daytime hours from Monday to Friday.
Financial, sustainability and environmental performance targets.
In delivering some of the largest systems for leading private schools nationally we have found that many schools choose a staged approach and want to partner with an organisation who can develop a strategy and roadmap to transition to clean energy. So, we prefer to work collaboratively with leadership team, sustainability team, facilities/operations teams and students to understand the specific drivers and objectives of your school including:
With diminishing solar feed-in tariffs by energy retailers, it makes sense to store excess solar energy and use it during cloudy days or after hours.
We also have income generating opportunities for schools with our Electric Vehicle Charging Hub and Battery Energy Storage Systems.
Bayside College is a public, multi-campus, co-educational P-12 school in Melbourne. Their 200 kW solar systems deliver 38% in energy and 138 tonnes in CO2 savings every year.
Matthew Flinders Anglican College, on the Sunshine Coast is walking the talk as a leader in delivering a sustainable campus with their 472 kW solar system saving almost $80,000 and 475 tonnes of CO2 every year.
