Pembroke Primary School Exports Surplus Solar Power to Grid

The Pembroke Primary School in Malta, which installed its solar photovoltaic power system in September 2009, has produced a total of 43,200 kWh power and supplied nearly 15,830 kWh to the national grid.

The school, which comes under the St Clare College network, also has installed a 2.5 kWp wind turbine system, an intelligent lighting system in addition to three solar water heaters. The school has constructed rainwater harvesting systems to collect the rain run-off water from its roof structures for cleaning purposes and for flushing the school toilets. Similarly, the underground water is utilized for irrigating the plants of the school and to conserve the first quality government water for drinking and hand washing requirements only.

Similar to its clean energy initiatives at the Pembroke primary school, the government also has undertaken steps to promote the use of clean energy. The clean energy initiatives of the government include opening of a recycling plant at Sant’Antnin, which will produce power from wastes. It also has unveiled its intention to cover around 67,000 square meter area of public roofs with solar PV panels for producing solar energy. The government also has plans to introduce incentives to encourage people to generate and utilize clean alternative energy.
