Sacred Heart College is a Catholic co-educational secondary college located in Sorrento, WA, directly opposite Hillarys Boat Harbour. Established in 1967 by the Sister of Our Lady of the Missions, Sacred Heart College has approximately 1400 students in Years 7 to 12, in addition to 170 staff. The College is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year (2016).
In an effort to cut energy costs, Sacred Heart College contacted Infinite Energy in early 2014, beginning a long and diligent solar selection process. After almost two years of research, Sacred Heart College chose Infinite Energy as their solar provider due to the integrity, analytics, and Infinite Energy’s unmatched commercial experience in the WA market.
After carefully analysing Sacred Heart College’s electricity usage and spend, Infinite Energy recommended the installation of a 100kW solar system with real-time grid and solar monitoring.
In June 2016, Infinite Energy installed 360 x Winaico Panels (93.6kW) and 4 x SMA 20kW inverters, solar and grid monitoring, in addition to updating and integrating an existing 5kW system that was already on site.
