The magnitude of Solar PV installation on the Hugenote Highschool dormitories, can only be fully comprehended when seen from the air.
Congratulations to the RenEnergy engineering and technical team for another excellent design and installation.
Besides for the tremendous savings, the annual generation carbon savings is equivalent to:
- 2005 tree seedlings grown for ten years, or
- 2742 incandescent lamps switched to LED’s, or
- 6 tons of waste recycled instead of landfilled, or
- 300 000 km travelled by car
We want to congratulate Hugenote for having the vision to create this lasting legacy.
In 10 days, the system had carbon savings equivalent to 48 trees planted, or, 12,564 km travelled by car. Not only is the school saving, but they are giving back to the environment.
The installation will be able to export excess power generated during the day onto the municipal grid, and receive credit.
