Kincoppal-Rose Bay — largest school solar power system in the Eastern Suburbs

With the help of the 3-Council Solar my School program, Kincoppal–Rose Bay has just gone solar! The school has installed 338 panels to provide locally generated, green energy to power the School’s sports, music and performing arts facilities. At 99.7kW, It’s the largest solar power system in the Eastern Suburbs, outside the UNSW. “We are excited to capture the financial and environmental benefits of solar energy for our school, and provide our students with practical education about renewable energy”, says Principal Hilary Johnston-Croke.

The school will save around $14,500 each year to reinvest in new play equipment, and other environmental and cost-saving initiatives. 

Key benefits

  • save ¼ on facility’s energy bills
  • produce clean green electricity each year, equivalent to running 745 school computers or 26 homes each year       
  • avoid 130 tonnes of carbon emissions each year, equivalent to taking around 50 cars off the road annually.  

Solar my School is a 3-Council initiative available to all schools in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney.
