Boekenhout Primary Energy Efficiency and Solar PV
- By: Ken Nunes
The ECCS programme put forward a selections of buildings to carry out the Pilot Project, one of which was Boekenhout Primary School in Eldorado Park, as Suntricity had already carried out extensive monitoring to the electricity consumption of the school.
In March 2017, the DOE formally initiated the work, funded by SANEDI, where, as recommended, a number of initiatives were included:
- LED Lighting throughout the school
- Some classrooms fitted with Double Glazed windows
- Natural ventilation
- Lighting sensors
- Solar PV Electricity system
We will do our best to bring the results to your attention.
