CSU has signed a contract with Todae Solar to install a major solar energy facility at Wagga Wagga Campus.The system, rated at 1.77 megawatts, will be one of the largest rooftop solar energy systems found anywhere in Australia. This project will deliver on the University Strategy for renewable, sustainable energy and significantly enhance the University's carbon footprint.The forecasted annual output from the system is 2,600,000 kWh, which represents 18.7 per cent of the University's electricity consumption in Wagga Wagga, and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2,513 tonnes CO2-e compared to conventional grid-sourced electricity.
At CSU, we take electronic waste (e-waste) disposal seriously. The CSU Computer Shop has an e-waste recycling program in place for old University IT assets. This program covers all campuses and recycles CSU-owned computers and accessories.About 99 per cent of materials that make up a computer are recyclable, so you can help the environment by turning your old device to create new, useful items.
To take advantage of the CSU Computer Shop e-waste recycling program, log an IT Service Desk request and complete the Asset Disposal Form [pdf 1mb]. Ensure a copy of the form is left with the goods for collection. See the Information Technology Equipment Disposal Policy for further details.
