Huawei has donated one of its latest award winning SUN2000-10KTL-M0 inverters to the Green School in Bali, helping it to further establish itself as a carbon positive campus, benefiting hundreds of young pupils, their parents, teachers and the entire community.
Green School students helped set up and install the inverter and related solar panels, learning about renewable energy in the process, an example of how the school teaches subjects through hands-on projects applied to real-world circumstances.
“At Huawei, environmental protection is one of the four key strategies that drive our sustainable development, mirroring the Green School’s vision. As part of our on-going efforts to enable local communities to be progressively dependent on renewable solar energy, we are delighted to support the school’s carbon positive initiative by offering our smart solar solution”, commented Bruce Li, Managing Director of Huawei’s Asia-Pacific (APAC) Enterprise Digital Power Business.
The Green School has had a constant commitment to renewable energy since opening in 2008. Its PV system is comprised of 118 PV panels, a 72 kWh capacity lead acid battery bank and inverters.
“It’s been a goal from the very beginning to have the school run on as close to 100% renewable energy as possible. The inverter donation has helped us close in on that objective, reducing our CO2 emissions by about 3.5 tonnes per month,” explained John Hardy, the school’s founder. “We are very grateful to all our partners and generous sponsors in making this possible and the contribution from Huawei will definitely inspire our children in their journey towards living sustainably.”
Anthony Vovers, the school’s renewable energy advisor added: “The inverter is really light-weight and compact. The installation process was a breeze and all the connections to the network were easy to establish, with a simple LED light indicating the operating status of the inverter at a glance.”
“As an organization, we are both inspired and impressed by the Green School’s progress in establishing itself as a sustainable institution,” continued Huawei’s Bruce Li. “At Huawei, we strive to use clean and renewable energy to build green campuses that boast low carbon emissions. The PV plants at Huawei campuses have a combined capacity of 19.35 MW, and generated over 12 million kWh of electricity in 2020. This is equivalent to a reduction in CO₂ emissions of more than 5985 tons.”
Huawei’s industry leading digital power currently serves one third of the world’s population across more than 170 countries and regions.
