Our significant investment in parcel facilities since 2017/18 provides us with the opportunity to be proactive and future focused in the design of these sites. We have done this by choosing energy efficient solutions that support our carbon reduction goals and contain our energy costs.
The design and development of the Redbank Parcels Facility in Brisbane reflects this focus and commitment to our environment goals.
Redbank will be the 50th site with rooftop solar in our property portfolio. The rooftop 1MW Solar Photovoltaic (PV) installation at Redbank is made up of 3,244 individual panels and covers an area of 5,300m2. It will generate over 1,500 MWh of electricity and save approximately 1,200 tonnes of CO2e, which is equivalent to taking 255 cars off the road each year. The system will offset energy costs of up to $280,000 and generate renewable energy certificates on an annual basis.
The Redbank facility will also be fitted out with more than 1,500 energy efficient lights that will generate additional savings through lower ongoing running costs and reduced maintenance requirements.
