Energy Matters to build Australia's largest commercial rooftop solar system

Energy Matters will construct and install Australia's largest privately-owned rooftop photovoltaic solar system at NEXTDC's data centre in Port Melbourne.


NEXTDC, an independent data centre operator, will spend a total of $1.2m for the installation of up to 400kW of solar panels to generate around 550 MWh (megawatt hours) of electricity per year.


Australia-based Energy Matters will construct the system, which is expected to offset over 670 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per annum, over the next couple of months.


NEXTDC CEO Bevan Slattery said his company is also planning to deploy up to 1MW of solar energy within the next year at its upcoming facilities.


"We are very aware of the future pressures on energy consumption and we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint however we can," Slattery said.


Energy Matters managing director Jeremy Rich said his company feels excited to be part of the NEXTDC project.


"As one of first truly large-scale, privately funded and owned rooftop PV solar systems, we see this as the start of something big for commercial solar in Australia and applaud NEXTDC for taking the lead," Rich said.
