Westfield Marion’s impressive solar install
In partnership with Origin Energy, we are reducing our reliance on energy from the grid at our Westfield Marion centre.
“This is an incredibly exciting milestone on our path to creating a more sustainable business.”
– Ian Irving, Design & Construction Director.
We are installing Australia’s largest solar-powered car park canopy
The installation consists of 240 car parking spaces, covered by 14 separate solar canopies. The canopies will generate solar energy and provide shaded car park space, improving the shoppers’ experience.
The solar-powered car park canopy size is 647.73kW with an annual generation capacity of 950MWh and is helping Scentre Group achieve an annual saving of approximately 650 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
Solar energy is a key pillar in our sustainable energy strategy. It reduces our reliance on traditional electricity generation, ensures greater cost certainty and provides a win-win for stakeholders and the environment.
