Autonomous Energy installed a 100kW solar PV system on an historic 1930’s factory in Sydney’s inner west which is being redeveloped by W Property Group. This is yet another example of Autonomous Energy’s proficiency in working with high-end developers to custom design and install solar - on both new and redevelopment projects - across Australia. 

This redevelopment focuses on one of the three original 1930’s Slazenger factories on the iconic Slazenger manufacturing site, converting it into a unique 3,400 sqm commercial warehouse space with soaring saw-tooth roof, exposed steel roofs trusses, sandblasted brickwork with preserved graffiti, and 35 car spaces.

Autonomous Energy solution

  • The building has been redeveloped to preserve and restore its history and provide a sustainable and green work environment. As part of the conservation process, the architect chose to retain the existing saw tooth roofs with exposed steel roofs trusses and large glass windows. Unlike other buildings the occupants are able to see the solar power system from inside.
  • Autonomous Energy designed and installed the mounting system and all the cabling so that it does not obstruct the view and the simple form of the solar PV system.
  • One of developer’s requirements was to future-proof the system by having the capacity to deliver clean electricity produced by the solar power system to the individual tenant’s distribution boards. Although currently all the production is connected to the main switchboard, Autonomous Energy has designed the system so that it can be reconfigured - with only small changes to the system - to supply tenants directly.
  • The system is expected to generate 137 MWh per annum and reduce GHG emissions of the building by 118 kg CO2-e.
