Coomera Anglican College is on its way to becoming one of the most energy efficient schools on the Gold Coast.
With Stage 2 of their solar installation now complete, the college is also closer to completing its Sustainability Project.
The Sustainability Project is Coomera Anglican College’s commitment to reduce its environmental footprint, which also provides educational opportunities for students and prepares aspiring environmental leaders for their future.

The second stage of the project saw a further 158kW of solar infrastructure installed, building on the 100kW installation of Stage 1 back in 2016.
The college is proposing a further 100kW of solar infrastructure be added to their Primary School campus as part of the third stage of the project which will commence later this year.
Upon the completion of Stage 3, the college will be able to boast that it offsets between 70-80% of its current energy consumption.
Coomera Anglican College Business Manager, David Dobbie, says the project has a range of educational and economic benefits and the college will continue to lead environmental efforts not only in the school, but in the wider community as well.
“It is important to the College that we lead by example and the solar installation will give students access to the data, providing opportunities for them to apply real time and personally relevant information in their learning.
“We are confident that we are preparing our students to be environmental leaders of the future,” he said.
