ECO expands Catholic Schools' solar and battery projects

Throughout 2018 and 2019, ECO completed the scoping of an additional 40 Catholic schools in QLD and NSW for large-scale, distributed solar PV and battery plants. Over 200 school buildings were assessed for electrical and structural engineering to enable the deployment of renewable energy systems.

“ECO’s focus is distributed, multi-site, renewable energy generation and conservation projects. After design and installation, we maintain and monitor the whole deployment and manage it as a Renewable Energy Network. By the end of 2020, we expect to be managing a significant portfolio of sites deploying savings to customers and delivering additional capacity to the local energy grid.” Martin Oldfield, Managing Director.
