Josephians go green

In keeping with global trends and the National Policy towards sustainable energy and greener environment, St. Joseph’s College, Colombo 10, a premier Catholic school in the country, inaugurated the first phase of a Solar Power Generation Project on 27th of March 2019 at a simple ceremony at College premises in the presence of its Rector Rev.Fr. Travis Gabriel.

The 60KW solar energy plant marks the beginning of the school’s switch over to renewable energy, while resulting in reduction of approximately one third of its electricity usage from the National Grid. The Project Committee followed a very stringent but transparent process in selecting Solar Therm as their energy partner.

This is yet another project initiated and carried out by the Jaela-Wattala branch of St. Joseph’s College OBU, who have also contributed towards the development and welfare of the college with other carefully identified projects such as renovation and modernisation of the school dental clinic and the installation of a Digital Cricket Scoreboard.
