The solution

 

A member of Community Colleges NSW, Robinson College delivers vocational education and training courses in business, IT, nursing, horticulture and OHS, plus community courses including languages and arts across a 4200m campus. 

 

The remote Broken Hill location of the college was a major contributing factor toward high ongoing energy costs and subsequently highlighted the need for the college to source a localised energy production solution.

 

With the college operating primarily during daylight hours and with ample available roof surface, photovoltaic solar was a swift and highly efficient solution to address the high cost consumption profile. 

 

Installation of a 60kW photovoltaic solar energy system saw an immediate 25% reduction in daytime energy costs, with post-contract operational savings projected to extend to over $30,000 p.a. 

 

Taking ownership of their private power station will see Robinson College independently produce 111,350kWh of their annual electricity demand.
