Solar Power Project

Project Scope

More than 100 solar panels will be installed over the rooftop of the old wing of the school building, capable of generating 50 kW of electricity in ideal conditions, equivalent to powering more than 60 1-hp air-conditioners at the same time.

Despite the large scale of this project compared with similar projects at other schools in Hong Kong, our school is still planning to further expand the scale of the project to the new wing in a few years’ time.

The solar panel system will help supply electricity throughout the territory, through the connection to the CLP grid. Under the scheme, CLP will, at least for the next 15 years, pay for our generated electricity at a rate much higher than their selling price.


Project Funding

Dr. Lee Yui Bor, an alumnus graduated in 1965, who is also our IMC manager, fully funds the project and oversees the technical aspect of the work.

He wishes that the revenue generated from the FiT Scheme will be used to

1. provide funding for the Mrs. Helen Wong Memorial Scholarship and the Mr. Chan Chee Yum Scholarship.
2. provide financial assistance to our needy students.
3. support our environmental and STEM education.

The above two scholarships were set up by Dr. Lee, helping a lot of Jubileans for many years.

We sincerely thank Dr. Lee for his tremendous contributions to our school.

English
  • Inter-Disciplinary Trivia Quiz during English Festival (to include questions related to science and environment)
  • Spelling Bees Competition (using list of words related to energy, environment and science)
  • Lyrics rewriting competition (rewrite the lyrics of a song to promote environmental friendliness)
  • Movie appreciation
  • STEM-related English books and online reading platform (collaboration with Physics)
Liberal Studies
  • Enquiry-based learning on the CLP Feed-in Tariff Scheme
  • Glossary APP (collaboration with ICT)
Physics
  • Solar cooker project
  • Guest lectures
  • Visits to CLP educational facilities
  • Analysis of solar panel and weather data
  • Mini solar panel project (collaboration with IS)
  • Online STEM reading platform (collaboration with English)
Integrated Science

  • Energy saving campaign
  • Analysis of solar panel and weather data (collaboration with Physics)
Geography
  • Rooftop / virtual tour
  • Curriculum integration for topics related to global warming, climate change, and sustainable city
Visual Arts
  • Drawing of school campus, focusing the solar power panel corner as subject matter
ICT
  • Build Your Own Smart Home System
  • Glossary APP (collaboration with LS)
  • Build your own robot by Solar Energy
