With help from Energy Makeovers, St Joseph’s Primary School made the decision to install a solar energy system for their school property. To optimise the largest amount of roof space available with direct sunlight, we recommended 2 systems, across 2 buildings with an inverter for each.
Energy Makeovers project managed the installation to ensure installation occurred during the holidays to prevent disruption to pupils. We installed a 35KW energy system with 128 Trina panels (64 on each building), paired with Fronius 2x15KW inverters.
St Joseph’s will now be able to save over $12,000 in grid energy costs and see a pay-back period of 2.9 years.
