Sydney car park to install solar panels on rooftop


Willoughby Council has announced plans to install the
biggest council-owned solar farm on the rooftop of Chatswood’s Albert Avenue
car park. The project, which will see 140 solar panels installed on the rooftop
of the car park, is the first part of a three-year plan to build a 300-kilowatt
energy system that will provide power to three council-owned buildings.

The council’s director of sustainability projects,
Sally Hamilton, said the $4 million project would pay for itself in energy
savings over the 25-year life of the solar panels. The use of the rooftop space
is model being used in the US, where the rooftop of parking lots next to large
consumer malls is commonplace.
