The Byron Bay English Language School (BBELS) has installed a 9.6 KW solar electric system on its campus roof. The 42 solar panels will produce almost half the school’s electricity requirements. Additionally, all of BBELS’ student houses have solar hot water systems.
“ We are delighted to invest in renewable energy technologies and have them visible to our international students,” says BBELS director Michael O’Grady. “ We know that the future holds well for responsible actions by organisations to adapt to new technologies.”
The school’s location in Australia’s Byron Bay naturally helps. “Byron Bay is a sunny place. Ever since we installed it, the sun has been at work for us,” Michael adds.
