Australia Post installs giant single-roof solar panel at Sydney parcel centre

Australia Post has completed building what it describes as “the country’s largest single-roof solar panel installation” at its Sydney Parcel Facility in Chullora.

In a statement issued today (18 December), Australia Post said the project spans over 11,000 square meters and is set to save over $800,000 in energy costs every year. Furthermore, thet 2.1MW installation will save 2,200 tonnes of carbon emissions from the environment every year, the same as taking 468 cars off the road.

Australia Post Group Chief Financial Officer, Janelle Hopkins, commented: “The solar power installation will reduce our operational costs, enabling us to invest more in the products and services our customers want from Australia Post.

“This installation is the 49th solar-equipped site within Australia Post’s network, which combined will generate 5,000MWh of renewable electricity every year – enough to power over 820,000 homes.
“Our investments in improving energy and cost efficiency of our buildings have already saved us $40 million. This project is a strong example of our commitment towards leading with environmentally sustainable business outcomes.”

The installation was completed last month and the solar panels are set to go live by the end of the year.
