Autonomous Energy has designed, installed and commissioned a 60kW Solar PV system at Pymble Ladies' College. The system was installed in two phases, the first phase (16kW) was commissioned in July 2011 and the second phase (60kW) went live in February 2012. This impressive industrial size solar PV system is part of Pymble Ladies' College's dedicated Environmental Management Plan and commitment to sustainability.

The system comprises world record efficiency 215W multi-crystalline PV solar modules manufactured by Kyocera. The array is mounted on engineered, solar specific mounting equipment and is connected to SMA three phase inverters via premium quality (USE2 rated) DC solar cabling. The inverters connect to the electricity network via a new solar distribution board and a digital bi-directional CT meter which enables Pymble Ladies' College to use the solar electricity first and export any excess electricity produced to the electricity network. A specialised Solar Data Monitoring system has also been installed which collects and displays a range of data including solar power output from the inverters, sunlight levels, ambient temperature, cell temperature and much more. This data is presented on a customised Online Web Portal.

Using CEC guidelines Autonomous Energy has conservatively estimated that the system will produce approximately 86,403 kW hours p.a. and reduce GHG emissions by 91,588 kg CO2-e p.a. This equates to permanently removing 73 small cars from the road or enough energy to power 25 households.
