Brentwood Secondary College

2016 Winner - Energy Secondary School of the Year

 

While Brentwood Secondary College has only recently started its sustainability journey, the school has already made serious head way. During the past year the school has analysed its energy use and identified areas for improvement. It has placed temperature setting labels on remote controls to all heating/cooling devices; installed a 30 kW solar PV array, which started generating electricity this year, and celebrated Earth Hour. It now switches off all appliances (expect servers and important fridges) during term holidays.

Brentwood Secondary College communicated their actions to the wider community through newsletter articles to raise awareness on saving energy.
