Solar for Dover

Adopt a Solar Panel
 

 

 

"A great step forward for energy conservation". Raghav Shukla, Class of 2015

Inspired by a Grade 5 Exhibition project, 'Solar for Dover' is a student led initiative that is raising funds to reduce the carbon footprint of the Dover Campus. 

This project is just one part of the College's ongoing commitment to reducing its impact on the environment. Over the next two years we hope to install 860 panels across three locations—the Art Block, The Senior Sports Hall and the Junior Sports Hall. 

We all have a responsibility to protect our environment and the Solar for Dover project is a very real way the whole College community can be involved in creating a more sustainable future for all. Yes, it is a big mission, but the reward will be pretty big too - once all the panels are in place, they will prevent over 137,500kg of Carbon Dioxide from being released into the atmosphere each year - in CO2 terms, that's the equivalent of 790 flights to Bangkok*. 

To find out more about this important initiative, take a look at the story behind Solar for Dover.

For a donation of $600 you can  adopt a panel and help make the Solar for Dover programme a reality. You can customise your panel with pictures, as well as leave a personal message. You can also adopt part of a panel from $100.

Phase 1 is now complete! In Summer 2015, the first set of Solar Panels were installed on the Junior School Sports Hall. Thank you to all that supported this wonderful initiative. Now on to Phase 2 :-)

Adopt a full panel

For a gift of $600 you can adopt a full panel. Your chosen picture or image would fill the whole panel and when you hover over the panel, your name and personalised message will pop up – just like this did.

 

Adopt a panel segment

For gifts of $100 - $500 you can adopt one to five segments (parts) of a solar panel. Your chosen picture or image will appear in your adopted segments and when you hover over your segments, your name and personalised message will pop up – just like this did.

What a great initiative. So lovely to hear how this started as a student project. Yay to Raghav and his fellow students for making this possible. Good luck.

Vicky Berman

A great initiative, I've always thought that Singapore should make more use of solar panels. I love the fact that it was inspired by the G5 exhibition & that you're taking action. Good luck with the fundraising.

This initiative is a wonderful representation of the UWC Movement's positive influence. Renewable energy sources should be used more often and this is a great way to promote this change and to conduct it. I do hope that the community in UWCSEA Dover keeps the environment a focus as it has always have throughout my years in this institution - Gareth Wong

How did this all begin?

This project is a student led initiative by Raghav Shukla (Class of 2015) who  became inspired after his Grade  5 Exhibition, which focused on Sustainable Energy. In 2012 he made contact with the Facilities Department and sat down to discuss his ideas. Following the positive conversation he began to put together a proposal and in May 2013 he presented it to the Facilities Committee (which makes the decisions about building development at the College) and it was approved.

Some key facts:

  • With events every evening and weekend and during holidays, as well running two boarding houses, Dover Campus' energy use is larger than most schools - approximately 8,187090 kWh per year. 
  • As Singapore generates its electricity almost exclusively through a mix of natural gas and oil this means we have a large carbon footprint from our electricity use - about 500g of C02 per 1 kWh.
  • Our facilities department are working hard to reduce this energy use through efficiency measures but current space and infrastructure allows us to have up to 864 solar panels on our site (this may well grow in future).
  • Once fully operational these panels can meet as much as 50% of our electricity for lighting, saving 137,500 kg of C02 each year from being released into the atmosphere, as well as reducing our electricity bill.
  • The best three locations for the panels would be the Senior Sports Hall, Junior Sports Hall and the Art Block.
  • Total cost of installation will cost in the region of $540,000. Because we want to move this initiative forward as quickly as possible, we will install the panels in three stages.
  • *The Carbon emissions saved from this project would be equivalent to 790 per passenger one way flights to Bangkok from Singapore. This is an estimate based on an average of industry models using fuel data from short haul aircraft.

Why are we fundraising for this?

Dover Campus wants to strengthen its commitment to Environmental Stewardship and the Solar for Dover project is a very real way the whole College community can be involved in creating a more sustainable future for all. 

Each panel costs $600 to install, but to make this wonderful initiative accessible to all we have divided the panels into sections of $100. Donations can be made from families, as an individual or as a group - perhaps as a class gift, community group gift, or in honour of a birthday.

How will we recognise your support?

Firstly, your name, or the name of the group who made the gift, will be on the panel, or part of panel you have adopted (you get to personalise the image that appears as well so you could even take a picture and pop your face on the panel) as well as a little message of support, or perhaps the reason why you have chosen to support Solar for Dover. Not only will this publically acknowledge your commitment to sustainability, but it may also encourage others to support this important initiative.

Secondly, as Solar for Dover is a core part of our Annual Fund programme your name (or group name) will feature on our donor wall and in our annual report.

Finally, and most importantly, each year you will receive an update on the work of our sustainability programme at Dover. This will be an update on the solar panel initiative, but also all the other environmental projects we are undertaking to truly live out our UWCSEA mission.
