Rawhiti School - 20 kW

Rāwhiti School is a U6 Full Primary School situated in the culturally diverse Christchurch suburb of Brighton, with pupils drawn from a number of surrounding suburbs. The school has a current roll of 502. Rāwhiti School is a merger of Central New Brighton, Freeville, and North New Brighton schools.

The school opened in January 2015 and was operating for its first year in the existing buildings on the Freeville and Central sites, known as the QE2 Base and Beach Base respectively, while new facilities are being built on Leaver Terrace.

This graph below uses the latest technology to show live solar generation AND how much electricity the school is using from the grid down to the last 5 minutes. The solar generation is shown in yellow, and if you click 'Show More' then you will see the electrical energy coming from the Grid in orange (below the zero line). 

The GRID data is correct for the whole school from the 2nd of December 2016 (before this it was only measuring a ventilation circuit). It also shows if any solar generation is not used in the school and is being sent back to the Grid for a small credit (look for the orange bars above the zero line).
