The school was interested in reducing their energy costs, their reliance on the grid and building the capability to produce their own clean energy.


Cherry recommended the College start by reducing their current energy expenditure by upgrading their existing lights to LED.

Cherry installed more than 800 LED lights throughout the school. LED battens, troffers and tubes replaced the old fluorescent lights in classrooms and hallways and in the basketball court, the old 400W metal halide highbays were replaced with 200W LED highbays.

Following the LED upgrade, an 89.64kW solar system was then installed, allowing Cornish College to produce their own clean energy and reduce their reliance on the grid.
