Solar for Camberwell Grammar

Australia's largest school solar system

22 February 2018

We are incredibly proud to announce that Gippsland Solar is currently installing a 862kW (2,650 panel) solar power system on the roof of Camberwell Grammar School in Canterbury. This is largest solar project on any school in the country!

The tendering process for this project was intense and we were thrilled just to make the final cut, let alone be awarded the tender. However, the level of detail we have put into this project, including 3D drone modelling, and immensely detailed electrical and structural engineering secured our success, and will set the bar for future commercial solar projects.

The Camberwell Grammar install is the fourth large-scale private school installation we have completed in the past two years, with others including Gippsland Grammar, Newhaven College, and a handful of public schools. Our ability to work within the parameters of school holidays is key to our success. In addition, we are introducing several educational components to the Camberwell Grammar project, including 2 “off-grid classrooms.”

The solar system on Camberwell Grammar will deliver a whopping 1GWh (1 million kWh’s) of clean energy per year.

Our team of 14 commercial installers are staying in Melbourne to install this project and we are thrilled to be able to offer these local guys such an incredible experience, through professionalism and sheer hard work they have represented Gippsland Solar so well on this monumental project.

A business is only as good as its staff, and we are fortunate to have the very best on our side.

Newhaven College leads the way

Newhaven College leads the way

Newhaven College is an independent, ecumenical and co-educational school founded in 1980 and now caters for over 900 students from Prep through to Year 12. While the students enjoyed their recent school holidays, the Gippsland Solar projects team sprang into action!

This 240kW (740 panel) solar array was the most complex project we have worked on, and involved some of the most advanced wireless technology on the market. Our project managers, electricians and installers managed to deliver this project during the school holidays, and to the highest standard.

Feedback from the school board has been overwhelmingly positive – wait until they see their electricity bills! We can’t wait to educate the students on the benefits of this system.
