Powerful move as Moriah goes solar
The atmosphere was electric at Moriah College on May 18, when the school’s new 344-panel rooftop solar power system – officially the biggest in Waverley – was launched at a full school assembly by Coogee MP Bruce Notley-Smith, and later turned on.
The system, made possible with the help of the Solar My School Program, a $17,000 NSW Government grant and input from project teams at Waverley, Woollahra and Randwick councils, will reduce the school’s annual carbon emissions by 116 tonnes and reduce energy bills by 11 per cent, saving approximately $24,000 per year.
Coogee MP Bruce Notley-Smith said “congratulations Moriah on taking this important step in being part of a solar power revolution that’s starting to take hold in this country”.
“This solar energy system that you now have is the largest one in Waverley, and the second largest in the eastern suburbs, so that’s a big tick for your school.”
