Rooftop Solar PV (Design and Construct)

In August 2009 Autonomous Energy installed 5kW of solar power at Abbotsleigh, one of Australia’s leading schools for girls. At Abbotsleigh Senior School a 5kW system was installed on the roof of the Senior Studies Centre. With over 800 students at Abbotsleigh Senior School, it was important that the installation of the system did not disrupt regular school operations. 

This system was among the first solar photovoltaic (PV) systems installed under the Commonwealth Government’s National Solar Schools Program.

Autonomous Energy solution

  • The system features 28 high efficiency 180W multi-crystalline PV solar modules manufactured by Kyocera.
  • The arrays are mounted on engineered, solar-specific mounting equipment and are connected to an SMA inverter which connects to the electricity network via a digital bi-directional meter.
  • The system is connected to the internet via a smart meter system which automatically uploads the systems energy production data to a dedicated website, where it can be accessed by students and the school community.
System Size 5 Kw
Annual Energy Production 14,453 kWh
Annual Emissions Reduction 15,450 kg CO2-e
Solar Inverter 2 SMA SMC Inverters
Solar Module 28 Kyocera Modules

What Abbotsleigh says

Autonomous Energy are a terrific company to work with - from the early stages of the grant application through to the completion of the project they were extremely professional. Autonomous Energy was happy to work with the school to minimise the impact of installing the panels. If you want to work with a professional company that endeavours to provide you with the best possible results - I can recommend Autonomous Energy.
