The Client Immaculate Conception High School for Girls is one of Jamaica's top educational institutions, home to over 2,000 students. They are known for their high standards of education and development of future leaders and well-polished young ladies.
The Situation Seeing the need to take control of their increasing energy utility bill, the school reached out to Green Energy Savings Limited, one of our partners, to help them switch to solar power. The Konnection Like many of our partners, Green Energy Savings Limited calls on Konnexx to provide technical support, manpower, and expertise for their solar installations. We answered the call and helped to install 50kW of solar power to Immaculate Conception High School. One of the most important aspects of this project was being mindful of the students' safety in all aspects of the installation process from the design, implementation and post-implementation of the solar panels. With this in mind, we completed the installation and since then they have seen massive savings on their utility bills and have been reaping the benefits of their wise investment. In addition, during the summer period when school is out, they are now able to sell the excess energy from that is not being used.
