Stockland has announced that it will install a 1.22 megawatt rooftop solar system on its 4 Green Star redevelopment of the Shellharbour Shopping Centre south of Wolongong.  When installed, it is expected be the largest single-site rooftop solar installation to in Australia.

The installation will comprise 3,991 panels and cover 7,568 square metres.  It is expected to generate on average of 4,789 kilowatt hours a day – 28% the centre’s building requirements.

The new solar rooftop system, which cost about $2 million, is expected to be operational by the end of May 2015.
