Summary

Emmanuel Catholic College in Success has a student body of approximately 1,100 students, ranging from Year 7 through to Year 12.

The campus includes a range of learning spaces, staff areas, a dedicated Arts and English Centre, extensive sports facilities and playing fields, gardens and grounds. These require a considerable amount of electricity to power equipment, lighting, air-conditioning, irrigation and other infrastructure.
A key focus area in Emmanuel Catholic College’s Strategic Plan 2020-2022 is sustainability and exploring ways to reduce the college’s carbon footprint. This commitment to sustainability is even reflected in the College’s crest with horizontal lines representing water, a key feature of the wetlands environment adjacent to the College.

After extensive research involving a range of solar suppliers, the College contracted our SolarReturn team to install a solar solution. A 99.990 kW solar system was installed on the roof of the Sports and Performing Arts Centre for Excellence in April 2020.
The 303 solar panels generate an average of around 452kWh of solar energy every day, which has translated into considerable savings from the College’s electricity bill.
