Solar Powered Cost Savings at 1 Reserve Road, St Leonards

Background

A new purpose-built facility, consolidating 10 NSW Health agencies into one location has been built at 1 Reserve Road, St Leonards NSW, improving collaboration between NSW Health agencies. Given the nature of this purpose-built facility and the various co-located health agencies, the building has been the site of Daily COVID-19 Press Briefings held by the NSW Premier and Health Officials.

Challenges & Objectives

  • NSW Government agencies are required to implement resource efficiency measures and to report on their progress against Government Resource Efficiency Policy (GREP), to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
  • To support the objectives and reporting obligations under the GREP framework, Property NSW initiated a plan to install rooftop-mounted Solar PV panels.
  • The objective of the Solar PV initiative is to reduce energy-related operating costs at the newly built facility and ensure overall carbon footprint is kept to a minimum.

What happened

Property NSW engaged Ecosave to develop and implement a turn-key Solar PV solution with a focus on maximising energy savings. Ecosave leveraged its expertise in the design and implementation of turnkey Solar PV projects to propose a comprehensive solution including ongoing Solar monitoring and maintenance.

Ecosave is working closely with Property NSW and key stakeholders to ensure health and safety is prioritised throughout the project, including COVID-19
related restrictions and policies. When the project is complete, the NSW Government is expected to save more than $25,000 in energy savings and achieve a
12.2 percentage (%) reduction in onsite electricity usage every year.
