The panels will have a total capacity of more than 1,250 kWp, and will generate 12.5 per cent of the electricity needs of all City properties, the City of Sydney said – making it Australia’s largest building-mounted solar PV program, covering approximately 9,000 sq m.
Currently, the largest building-based PV installations in Australia are at the University of Queensland (1,200 kWp) and at the Adelaide showgrounds (1,000 kWp).
“The City of Sydney is delivering on its commitment to reduce carbon pollution by 70 per cent and produce 30 per cent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030 – one of the most ambitious programs of any Australian government,” Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.
