Queen Elizabeth High School in Johnstown, Carmarthen, is a mixed community comprehensive school of 1,600 pupils, catering for all abilities between the ages of 11 and 18.
The CHP system, installed by ENER-G, will enable Queen Elizabeth High School and leisure centre to generate its own electricity, potentially cutting CO2 emissions by 127 tonnes annually.
The campus, operated by Carmarthenshire County Council, has undergone a multi-million pound redevelopment which includes a new school building and leisure facility incorporating a competition standard swimming pool and new external sporting facilities.
The ENER-G 70 CHP system was commissioned in June 2008 following the development of the new school building and leisure centre by Whitehead Building Services. As part of the package, ENER-G ’s specialist CHP engineers will maintain the system for the county council.
