The Cathedral College - Case StudyRockhampton Boarding School goes Hybrid with Tesla Powerpack
The Cathedral College, Rockhampton
Solar PV Installation, Battery Storage + LED Lighting Upgrade
The Cathedral College (TCC) in Rockhampton made the move to Solar to manage the school’s peak time energy costs and environmental impact. Careful investigations into energy options mean that a larger Solar PV roll out across Catholic schools in the area is underway, and TCC are proud to lead the way!
This was the first Tesla Powerpack 1.5 Commercial Battery to be installed at an Australian school, so GEM Energy’s engineers had some extra work in optimizing the solar system and ensuring its peak performance.
