BBELS Goes Solar
“The Byron Bay English Language school has recently installed a 9.6 Kw solar electric system on their campus roof. The instalment includes 42 solar panels that will produce close to half of the school’s electricity requirements. Additionally all of the BBELS student houses have solar hot water systems.
“ We are delighted to invest in renewable energy technologies, and have them visible to our international students. We know that the future holds well for responsible actions by organisations to adapt to new technologies. Many of our student comment that such installations are a positive image for the school.”
Mr O’Grady also commented that their location in Byron Bay also helps:
“Byron Bay is a sunny place. Ever since we installed it, the sun has been at work for us.”
