Situated on the beautiful harbour side precinct, The Rocks, Sydney Harbour YHA has recently appointed Solgen Energy to design and install a 35kW solar panel system.
As a business, YHA Sydney Harbour are committed to reducing their environmental footprint through heritage conservation and putting in place environmentally sustainable practices and services.
Their current energy and C02 reduction initiatives including, but not limited to, the solar hot water panels and gas powered generators have resulted in a 20% decline in fossil fueled electricity and 37% less natural gas use, so the implementation of solar photovoltaic power was a natural next step.
The 35kW roof mounted solar power system will generate an estimated 45.35MWh of energy for the business, and will save 48.5 tonnes in C02 emissions per annum
