St Francis Xavier College
St. Francis Xavier College is a 7 – 12 Catholic co - educational school in Victoria, Australia with more than 3,000 students and 3 campuses located in Berwick, Beaconsf ield and Officer. Its day to day operations therefore necessitate a significant amount of energy consumption. As a result the school made the commercial decision to significantly reduce its energy bills and take control of its energy future.
Beaconsfield Site: 200k W
Berwick Site: 100kW
Students, teachers, and the wider community at St. Francis Xavier were interested in reducing the school's environmental footprint with solar. Understanding your electricity bill or KVA charges, as well as how solar energy can really benefit your s chool is critically important, particularly in today’s economy and rising cost environment. Venergy built and installed a total of 400kW solar PV system at St Francis Xavier College. St. Francis Xavier College has since then seen a great return on investm ent thanks to the solar power installations on the three campuses, which has saved the school thousands of dollars per month whilst also reducing greenhouse gas emissions by hundreds of tonnes.
