We're getting solar ready

10 Dec 2018

Australia’s largest investment in solar for shopping centres is about to reach another significant milestone with the installation of roof top solar panels at Broadmeadows Central.


This exciting new source of clean, renewable energy will help us power the centre, reduce our exposure to the volatile energy market and make a positive environmental impact. When complete, our 2.2 megawatts (MW) solar system could provide enough annual energy to power over 500 average Australian homes.

The Broadmeadows solar installation forms part of Vicinity’s ongoing strategy to develop ‘intelligent energy destinations’ in our communities across Australia. We are already leading the way in retail property renewable energy with a $73m investment across 22 centres to deliver a total solar size of 31 MW annually. This would be enough to power the equivalent of 11 Melbourne Cricket grounds a year!


As with all major improvements to our centres visitors may experience some minor disruption, but rest assured we are doing our very best to minimise any impact.

When complete, our discreet but highly-effective roof top solar panels will help us provide an enhanced experience and shared value for the entire Broadmeadows community.
