Scotch College is a private boys school located in Swanbourne, Perth. Founded in 1897, the school has a long history of providing quality teaching to students and has upheld a tradition of leadership and excellence in the field of education.
The 50-building iconic school, known for their progressive curriculum, has approximately 1,500-students from Kindergarten through to Year 12, and includes a 50 metre pool, multipurpose library, and a large dormitory with capacity to house 170 boarding students.
In an effort to find a more feasible way of managing their electricity costs, as well as highlighting their sustainability values, Scotch College turned to cheaper, cleaner solar energy to slash their power costs. Infinite Energy were proud to win the sub-tender with energy services business Verdia to complete the impressive 512kW rooftop solar installation as a result of our unprecedented service and quality product offering.
A total of 1,721 PV panels were installed across multiple rooftops of the senior, junior/middle and maintenance school areas, with the systems expected to save Scotch College around $235,000 a year on energy costs. The system is expected to pay for itself in just under five years and save the school $4 million in reduced energy costs over the life of the assets.
