Largest solar array in metropolitan Melbourne to be installed at Melbourne Museum

Largest solar array in metropolitan Melbourne to be installed at Melbourne Museum
December 3, 2018

Museums Victoria is looking forward to a brighter and more sustainable future as the state-owned cultural institution begins installing what’s set to become the biggest solar array in metropolitan Melbourne at Melbourne Museum.

Museums Victoria is partnering global technology company Siemens Ltd on the project, which commenced mid November with helicopters manoeuvring 1,350 solar panels from the grounds of the Carlton Gardens precinct to the roof of Melbourne Museum.

Museums Victoria is the largest public museum organisation in Australia and attracts approximately 2.5 million visitors each year across landmark buildings including Melbourne Museum, Scienceworks, Immigration Museum, and the Royal Exhibition Building, a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in 1880.

The entire project will see solar panels installed at all four of Museums Victoria’s sites across Melbourne, and will cut the organisation’s emissions by 35%, saving 4,590 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per year – the equivalent of 983 cars worth of emissions a year.
