Todae Solar has been selected to design and install a 30kW commercial solar system on the roof of the Brookfield Place skyscraper in Perth, Western Australia. At its highest point, the building stands 244m tall and the solar system to be mounted on the roof will likely be the highest in the southern hemisphere, if not the world.
The height of Brookfield Place presents a range of unique design, logistical and installation challenges. While commercial skyscrapers typically have significant energy usage, there is often minimal room for solar arrays as the space is already occupied with equipment such as cooling towers and antennas. Todae Solar has designed a system featuring highly efficient Sunpower 327w panels and a special angled mounting system to make the best use of the available roof space while being robust enough to withstand the higher wind loads expected from tall buildings with low parapets.
Todae Solar’s innovative engineers and installation team have plenty of experience in designing and creating resourceful, quality solutions within tight deadlines for complicated projects like this. Other complex projects include the installation of a 1.22MW system for Stockland, a 535kW system for Baxter Healthcare and a 100kW system for Concord Hospital. This experience will be invaluable on the second highest building in Perth.
Todae Solar looks forward to delivering this iconic project for BHP and Brookfield.
