In alignment with their vision to be a leading, internationally recognised, co-educational school fostering responsible global citizenship, Caulfield Grammar has recognised that efforts were highly beneficial to reduce their carbon footprint. Additionally a pragmatic approach to reduce operational costs, without affecting the quality of service delivered is also a key activity of the school.
The facility has 4 x 3kW filtration motors running constantly. Prior to the implementation of the FW technology, the running cost of of these motors was more than $12,000 per annum. By fitting this technology, energy savings of more than 75%, were achieved, representing a financial saving of well over $9,000 per annum, and a ROI in under 12 months.
According to the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (Measurement) Determination 2008 (Schedule 1) in Victoria, the emission factor is 1.23 kg CO2-e/kWh. Based on these assumptions, the school was able to reduce their amount of CO2-e emissions by 84 tonnes per year.
