Woolworths' Norwest support office goes solar

Woolworths has selected Epho Commercial Solar to convert its Norwest support office at Bella Vista to solar energy.

The new solar system will have a capacity of 572 kW of solar power, supplying the equivalent of the energy usage of 120 households. Solar panels will cover approximately 3000 square metres of roof space.

The project reflects Woolworths’ ongoing commitment to sustainable energy and the company’s specific target to reduce carbon emissions. To date Woolworths has achieved savings of 18% from 2015 levels.

Built in 2006, the Woolworths Norwest support office has been recognised as one of the country’s most forward-thinking company office spaces, with over 60,000 m² of space, over 3000 staff, cafes and a gymnasium all on campus.

The project has unique challenges, as the campus has up to 3000 people working on site daily, very limited space available for the storage of solar panels and limited access for a crane.

To overcome these challenges, Epho plans to helicopter the solar panels and all main components from the ground onto the roof.

“We are very pleased to be working with Woolworths, one of Australia’s largest companies, on the conversion of their Norwest support office to solar energy. This project reflects Epho’s expertise in delivering complex large-scale projects and will make a real difference towards a sustainable future for Australia,” said Oliver Hartley, Epho’s Managing Director.
