Solar panel installation

As the heart of the Leichhardt community we care about our shoppers, our community and our environment.  This is why we are committed to investing in a sustainable future. Our sustainability focus ensures that we are

  • Continuously reducing our energy, waste and water
  • Investing in renewables
  • Educating for sustainability

In Febrary 2019 we began installing solar panels which will enable us to reduce our emissions and produce some of our own energy. This year, we’re investing $1.2million installing the largest shopping centre rooftop solar system in the Inner West and one of Australia’s largest car-shade solar projects.

Whilst there will be some short- term disruption to accessibility and parking, once completed this investment means we’ll be able to power 30% of the shopping centre using our own renewable energy source and reduce our emissions by 517 tonnes of CO2 each year.  This is the equivalent of taking 110 cars off the road or powering 60 local homes every year!  As part of this project, Marketplace Leichhardt will also install two electric vehicle charging stations, available for Marketplace customers.

Thank you for your patience during this construction phase. We’ll do our very best to minimise the disruption and ensure you continue to have a great shopping experience with us at Marketplace Leichhardt.  If you have any questions or need more information, please get in touch.
