Pakuranga College - Howick - 2 kW
In 2016, our tenth year of partnership with Genesis Energy in the Schoolgen program, we continue to strive to make a difference within our school environment.
Although small in numbers, our members consistently attend meetings and are active in the group enabling with our sight now set on achieving the Super
Solar Silver Award.
In addition to informing students and teachers at Pakuranga College to become more aware of the impact of their energy use, we also worked with Year Six’s at our local primary school; Waakaranga Primary, as we have done since 2014. Both the students of Pakuranga College and Waakaranga Primary are excited to grow this relationship in future. We hope to visit more primary schools such as Owairoa and Pigeon Mountain.
"This year (2016) we traveled to Wakaaranga Primary School to educate their Year 3's about energy. We found it very fun educating all the children because they were so enthusiastic with the activity stations we provided to learn about the different stages of energy." - Tanya Murali
*** NEW for 2016! As a reward for gaining the Bronze Super Solar Award at the end of 2015- we have been given new energy monitoring - now we can see exactly how much electricity our solar panels are generating AND how much electricity we take from the National Grid to run our English Block on which the panels are located.***
