Solgen Energy Group was awarded the City of Sydney Photovoltaic Project through a competitive tender process to design, procure and install over 1.25MW of solar power installations on buildings of the city, across more than 30 sites.

The City of Sydney Council recognised Solgen’s significant credentials as a commercial and industrial solar system integrator with experience in working with government across Australia.

The City of Sydney photovoltaic project has presented unique challenges which
have required innovation in the design and construction methodology.

Some of the key challenges have been:
• Heritage conservation
• Aesthetic architectural requirements
• Integration of systems into glass facades
• Elimination of high corrosion and high wind issues for sites near water
• High voltage requirements
• CBD access requirements

Sydney Park Pavilion was the first of the 30 sites to have a solar power system
installed as part of the project by the City of Sydney to support renewable energy.
The installed photovoltaic system comprises: 40 Yingli Poly 250W photovoltaic panels, one SMA STP 10000TL-10 transformerless tripower inverter and will produce 16 MWh of electricity per annum, that reduces Co2 emissions by 17 tonnes
per annum.

Lord Mayor  Clover Moore said the installation of solar across the City’s buildings was an important step in reaching its environmental goals.

“We are committed to tackling climate change and driving down carbon pollution. The City has one of the most ambitious targets of any government in Australia – a 70 per cent reduction in pollution and 30 per cent of electricity from renewable sources by 2030,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

“The City is getting on with the job. These solar panels produce no pollution when generating electricity – unlike coal-fired power, which is responsible for 80 per cent of the city’s carbon pollution. “Energy produced locally through solar panels, other renewable energy, trigeneration and fuel cell systems reduce the need to spend billions of dollars on new coal-fired power stations and network upgrades, which are driving up household electricity bills.”
