The situation

In addition to reducing their lighting bill, the school wanted to investigate the opportunity to install a solar system.

It was crucial that the school were able to remain cash flow positive from Day 1, in order to manage the cost of the project.

The solution

Princes Hill opted to retrofit their existing light fittings with a combination of Cherry LED T8 Tubes, IQ Smart Lamps, LED Troffers and LED Corn Lights. The lights will lead to a reduction in energy expenditure of 66% and due to a large range of Cherry LED lights being approved under the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target Scheme, the school received government rebates of over $24,000 to help contribute towards the cost of the upgrade.

TOTAL SAVINGS ON LIGHTING $24,693 PER ANNUM

Princes Hill combined their LED upgrade with the installation of a 42.5kw solar system. Made up of 162 Renesola panels, Solis inverters and fixed to the roof with premium Clenergy mounting gear, the system will on average generate 55,589 kWh of energy and will lead to emissions reductions of 67,265 kg C02
