We are delighted to share an exciting update from Woodland Star School. In our pursuit of sustainability, we have reached a new milestone that will shape a greener and more sustainable future. The Brackenhurst campus now has a cutting-edge 80 kW grid-tie solar system, with 146 solar panels integrated across the campus.

The solar system enables us to capture the power of the sun and convert it into clean and renewable electricity, a significant development in our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and creating a brighter and more sustainable world.

Our new solar system will offset an impressive 31% of the campus’ total energy consumption, with 50% of our daytime energy needs fulfilled by clean solar power.

Campus-Wide Impact

By diminishing our reliance on conventional energy sources, we take a proactive stance in combating climate change, actively reducing our on-grid energy usage. This solar grid system serves as the primary power source for most of our campus operations, including the Brackenhurst Conference and Retreat Centre, the Muna Tree Café, and, of course, Woodland Star School. These solar panels play a pivotal role in our journey towards energy independence, enabling us to operate seamlessly and sustainably.
