Redlands, a leading independent school situated in Cremorne on Sydney’s Lower North Shore, regards environmental education and sustainability as key features of the school’s commitment to developing young people who can contribute to the world of tomorrow.

At Redlands, students are taught about the importance of conserving the environment through a rich and balanced education program. The Pre-School to Year 12 co-educational school has implemented a ‘Greening Redlands’ program, driven through teachers, students and parents, which has made significant steps towards environmental sustainability.

As part of the ‘Greening Redlands’ program the school engaged Solgen Energy to install a 25 kWp solar power system – the largest solar installation at any Australian school of its time.


“Solgen Energy’s professional staff provided Redlands with honest advice and quality customer service throughout the entire process. They made it easy for us to achieve immediate benefits including reduced energy costs and the prevention of greenhouse gas emissions, and also the opportunity to educate a new generation of climate change savvy future leaders.”

David Lamb, Chief Operating Officer, Redlands.


The Solgen Energy solar power system at Redlands has provided reduced energy costs for the school, educational outcomes for students and an increased awareness of ‘green energy’ in the community.

The installation of this 25kW solar photovoltaic system will:

  • Generate an estimated energy output of 42 MWh annually.
  • Prevent 47 tonnes of greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere annually – the equivalent of removing 12 cars from the road each year.
  • Incorporate the solar power system into the school curriculum using the comprehensive monitoring equipment to analyze energy generation results.
  • Increase awareness of energy efficiency initiatives in the wider school community.

The photovoltaic system installed on the school’s multipurpose hall, Redlands House, includes 146 high quality Schott Solar modules which are ideally suited to Australia’s harsh climate and have been proven to outlast competitors in terms of durability and efficiency.

Solgen Energy worked closely with Redlands from start to finish – from assisting with the funding process, ensuring the installation was fast and hassle-free, and training school staff to get the most from the system.

The Solgen Energy solar power solution has a web based monitoring device built into the system to provide school staff with the ability to access real time energy generation statistics, store data and analyse the results. It also enables students to gauge the tangible effects of actions as simple as turning off lights
