In June 2012 Autonomous Energy installed a 17.1kW solar power system at Hunter Trade College. This system is one of many solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Australia installed under the Commonwealth Government’s National Solar Schools Program.

The system comprises of 90 x 190W mono-crystalline PV solar modules manufactured by ET Solar. The array is mounted on engineered, solar specific mounting equipment . The modules are connected to 1 x SMA inverter via premium quality (USE2 rated) DC solar cabling. The inverter connects to the electricity network via a digital bi-directional meter which enables Hunter Trade College to use the solar electricity in the school first and export any excess energy produced to the electricity network.
A solar data monitoring system has also been installed at the school to log and display various environmental inputs and outputs from the inverter. This information is displayed on this dedicated web portal.
