Scotch College, founded in 1851, is the oldest secondary school in Victoria, Australia.

The Campus, located in the heart of Melbourne, has executed the construction of a building called “The Sir Zelman Cowen Centre for Science”, with the aim of being a showcase of environmental sustainability, where Onyx Solar® just had to be present.

The solution developed by Onyx Solar® at Scotch College consists of the installation of a photovoltaic pergola on the roof of the building. This is formed of amorphous silicon PHOTOVOLTAIC CANOPY Victoria glass with a degree of transparency L vision (20%), enabling the ingress of daylight while providing considerable thermal protection.

The total installed power is 3.7 kWp, enabling the school to generate 2,051 kWh per year and to power nearly 120 lights cost-free and cleanly, thanks to the sun. it also prevents the release of 1.4 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.
