John Hunter Hospital Rooftop Solar

Powering our hospital with renewable energy

The largest single hospital rooftop solar panel installation in Australia

In December 2021, John Hunter Hospital became home to the largest single hospital rooftop photovoltaic solar system in Australia. The installation includes over 5300 solar panels covering 12,000 square metres of roof space.

The project was funded with a NSW Treasury loan through the NSW Government’s Energy Efficient Government Program, which is open to all Government agencies.

The system has a total generating capacity of 2.4MW or 2MVA (AC), supplying approximately 12 percent of the hospital's total energy requirement.
