Solar for Hospitals

28 August 2019

Our commercial team at Gippsland Solar have just put the finishing touches on this 500kW system for Wonthaggi Hospital, completing a 12-month rollout of installations across eastern Victorian health services.

At the time this was our largest contract; a 1.5MW portfolio of solar delivered across 8 hospitals and health services across Omeo, Orbost, Maffra, Wonthaggi, Sale and San Remo.

The project also included the largest installation on a hospital in Australia – a whopping 752kW system at Central Gippsland Health Service in Sale!

These were some of the toughest and most complex sites we have ever worked on, and our team had to tailor every project schedule to meet the operational requirements of each hospital.

Not only were these projects rolled out seamlessly, but we have benefited greatly from the experience, investing heavily in new processes and systems that have taken our commercial installation team to a new level.

We’ve also picked up a couple of new permanent employees from the hospitals as we rolled out the installations, further underlining the benefits of using a local provider for regional projects.

Thanks to the team at Health Purchasing Victoria for entrusting Gippsland Solar to deliver this rollout. We are very proud of our achievements, and the financial and environmental benefits that will flow to each health service for decades to come.
