NHSPA energy use

NHSPA uses over 1000kwHrs of energy per day, so the environment commitee is looking at ways to use energy more efficiently. Using funds from the Australian Government Solar schools program, the school has replaced two large hot Water systems with Solar hot water systems and is in the process of installing timers on the many water heaters and zip boilers so they don't run all night. The school's electricity comes through an older smaller power meter and a newer larger meter.

Photovoltaic Power System

cleaning up

A 5kW grid interactive  photovoltaic power system was installed using the Australian Government Solar Schools funds plus $5000 from the NSW Public Facilities program grant.

The power produced by this system is used by the school and any excess power is exported to the power grid.
