The school has chosen to go solar this year with a huge 6.4 kW solar power system that has been installed on the nor th facing roof of the St Anthony building by national solar company, Ingenero. A total of 32 solar panels will generate enough renewable energy to power more than the average South Australian home and will help to reduce the school's carbon footprint, and power bills. The school is tr ying to encourage awareness and promotion of a cleaner, greener environment by incorporating things such as red recycle bins for cans and plastic bottles, a butterfly garden and a new system called "enviro monitors". The system is fitted with a Sunny Por tal Monitoring System that records the power consumption, solar system output, power expor ted back to the grid and data that can be viewed by staf f and students via a secure login to the website. This will be useful for Environmental Studies as well as raising awareness of energy use and needs. Other environmental awareness activities the school has been involved with include Clean up Australia day, tree planting in the local community, plant growing and new subjects such as seasonal studies and wildlife studies. Many other Catholic High Schools in South Australia are also par ticipating in the National Solar Schools Program, but St Joseph's Payneham have one of the largest systems. St Joseph's Payneham's next initiative will be to increase the amount of water recycling for the oval, plants and gardens by adding extra rainwater tanks. St Joseph's goes solar Schools and parishes in South Australia have raised more than half a million dollars for Caritas Australia's 2010 Project Compassion.
