Meeting a third of the Perth Zoo’s energy needs with renewable generation
In 2012, the Perth Zoo was chosen as one of five locations across the city to showcase solar energy as part of the Australian Government's Solar Cities program. The zoo originally had 303 roof-mounted panels across eight buildings. Our goal? To more than double the solar panel installation.
This project involved the construction of a 100-metre, custom-built, pergola-style bus shelter at the main entrance to host an additional 452 solar panels—delivering 146.5 kilowatts of energy. We provided electrical engineering design and supply authority application and negotiations for connection approval for what was, at the time, the largest single solar photovoltaic generator in Perth.
The full solar installation had a power rating of 237.4 kilowatt hours and was expected to provide 370,000 kilowatt hours per year—meeting around 30% of Perth Zoo's energy needs.
