Logan Hospital’s new car park powers up

27 April 2022

More than 300 solar panels have been installed on the rooftop of Logan Hospital’s new multi-level car park—which will generate enough clean energy to run the car park and feed back into the power grid.

The solar farm is expected to generate 230,000 kilowatt hours per annum, which is well above the estimated 100,000 kWh needed to run the car park.

The remaining power will be fed back into the power grid, via a new high-voltage ring main being installed around the perimeter of the site.

By including solar panels in this project, we’re helping to chip away at the Government’s target to reach 50 per cent renewable energy in Queensland by 2030.

Metro South Health Board Chair Janine Walker said that Metro South Health was committed to becoming more sustainable across the health service, which operates five hospitals and a range of community facilities.

“As a large organisation, we have a huge opportunity and also a responsibility in reducing our environmental footprint,” Ms Walker said.

“The Logan Hospital car park is cleaner and greener, which will make a real difference to the environment for future generations,” she said.
