Hornsby Hospital Solar Power

SOLAR POWER | Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital has gone solar now boasting one of the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) system on a healthcare facility in NSW.

The green initiative is part of a statewide solar program which was launched by Minister for Environment and local Member of Parliament (Hornsby), Matt Kean, and Minister for Health, Brad Hazzard in January.

As the has a large roof space and relatively new buildings, the campus was selected to be one of the first hospitals in the state to have solar energy, with an estimated combined size of 865 kilowatts (kW).

The system will yield over one million kWs of power per year, saving $250,000 and 900 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
