Solar Power System

Our school’s Solar Power System is now switched on! What’s more, we can all view its performance from the web whenever we like – although we might not see much happening after dark… If you would like to see what contribution your school is making to reducing our energy demands, you can do so by going to: www.sunnyportal.com. There, you will be asked for your Username, which is our school’s special solar email address: emmaussolar@gmail.com and Password, which is: hubozofu. From there you can explore the menu items. The Visualisation section is an easy way to see exactly what is happening. Both the Plant Overview and Energy and Power pages soloar panelsare very interesting. As I type, we are on track to reduce our electricity bill this year by hundreds of dollars, which is excellent! So we thank the Lord for providing the money – using a government grant to do so – to reduce the amount of electricity we are needing from the normal electricity grid, which primarily comes from burning coal. God wants us to care for His creation the way a gardener cares for his garden – reaping the fruits, but respecting the way it is put together so that future generations can also enjoy its beauty and bounty, giving thanks to God for the wonderful way everything has been put together. PM top
