The Project

Kensington Castle Early Education Centre

Kensington Castle Early Education Centre is a forward thinking, privately–owned and family run early education centre aimed at providing an environment that is both stimulating and positive for young children. Established in early 2016, the centre is located in a stunning conversion of a 1920s corner shop and residence. The price of electricity has risen by over 40% for Australian businesses over the past 6 years. Through utilising solar power, Kensington Castle Child Care Centre can potentially reduce its day time consumption of electricity by up to 60%!

The Business Case

  • 5.12 tonne reduction of CO2 emission into the atmosphere
  • Produce their own day time electricity at $0.07/kWh
    • saving them 70% during daylight hours
  • Estimated annual saving of $3,100
  • Return on Investment in (ROI) in Year 1 - 33%
