The 172 kW system is a win for the community and the environment as every year it will save Port Phillip Council about $44,000 on electricity and supply costs while avoiding 300 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
The panels covering the roof of the St Kilda Town Hall will generate a minimum of 234,000 kilo-watt hours each year to help power the large, historic building. The system has a minimum life span of 25 years. The only bigger Victorian local government solar array is the system at the Queen Victoria Market.
Way to go!
