Gympie Central shopping centre is a Vicinity owned centre and this solar installation is one of many across their portfolio. After working closely with the client, a system was designed to meet specific performance ratios and maintain high utilisation of the solar energy produced. All panels have been designed with a minimum 10 degree tilt and have been installed according to very strict client technical specification.
Over 900kW of solar panels have been installed with panel level performance monitoring. The installation was incredibly challenging due to meeting very demanding technical specification as required by the client. GEM Energy achieved practical completion on this installation in less than 100 days in a highly accelerated installation program. The client will benefit from over 17,000 tonnes in carbon emissions reductions over the first 20 years of ownership.
