Port Solar Power
Announced today, a 824KW Solar System is to be installed at Port Adelaide Plaza as part of the $45m redevelopment. The system consists of 2,030 'SunPower' panels spanning approximately 5,000 square metres in area, which is equal to 9 full size tennis courts.
The power generated from the solar panels will provide around 50% of the total electricity requirement at Port Adelaide Plaza for base building services, lighting, lifts and air-conditioning and will reduce Co2 emissions by 962 tonnes per annum or divert the equivalent of 38,000bags of garbage from going to landfill each year, and avoid burning 37,000 litres of petrol per annum.
