We’re getting solar ready

Australia’s largest investment in solar for shopping centres is about to reach another milestone with the large-scale installation of roof top solar panels at Lake Haven Centre.

This exciting new source of clean, renewable energy will help us power the centre, reduce our exposure to the volatile energy market and make a positive environmental impact. When complete, our 2 megawatts (MW) solar system could power the equivalent of over 450 average Australian homes for a year.

Solar Program

The Lake Haven Centre solar installation forms part of Vicinity’s ongoing strategy to develop ‘intelligent energy destinations’ in our communities across Australia. We are already leading the way in retail property renewable energy with a $73m investment across 22 centres to deliver a total solar size of 31 MW. This would be enough to power over 8,300 average Australian homes a year with renewable energy!

As with all major improvements to our centres, visitors and nearby residents may experience some minor disruption, including limited instances of night time works required to keep customers, retailers, centre teams and local community members safe during trading hours. Rest assured we’ll do our very best to minimise any impact while these essential works take place.

When complete, our highly-effective solar panels will help us provide an enhanced experience and shared value for the entire Lake Haven community.
