Our roof top solar installation is well underway.


We’re getting solar ready.

Australia’s largest investment in solar for shopping centres is about to reach another significant milestone with the installation of roof top solar panels at Oakleigh Central.

This exciting new source of clean, renewable energy will help us power the centre, reduce our exposure to the volatile energy market and make a positive environmental impact. When complete, our 630 kilowatts (kW) solar system could provide enough annual energy to power over 150 average Australian homes.

The Oakleigh solar installation forms part of Vicinity’s ongoing strategy to develop ‘intelligent energy destinations’ in our communities across Australia. We are already leading the way in retail property renewable energy with a $73m investment across 22 centres to deliver a total solar size of 31 MW annually. This would be enough to power the equivalent of 11 Melbourne Cricket grounds a year!

As with all major improvements to our centres visitors may experience some minor disruption, but rest assured we’ll do our very best to minimise any impact.

When complete, our discreet but highly-effective roof top solar panels will help us provide an enhanced experience and shared value for the entire Oakleigh community.
