Solar benefits Dexus and its office customers

100 Harris Street in Pyrmont has had an interesting history dating back to the late 1890s when it served as one of Sydney’s original woolsheds. 

The heritage building was redeveloped into high quality office space in 2017 and following Dexus’s acquisition of the property, the building has been taken to the next level through the installation of 606 rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) panels. 

When Dexus acquired the heritage building, it identified that the property was well suited for solar panels due to its distinctive sawtooth roof which was a typical design of manufacturing properties of its time. 

The solar PV panels have the capacity to generate up to 250,000 kilowatt hours of energy per year which contributes to powering the base building services. The investment has a payback period of around five years and will contribute to increasing the property’s NABERS Energy rating. 

This solar PV system at 100 Harris Street also contributes to Dexus’s target of net zero emissions across its managed portfolio by 2030, with Dexus progressing plans to rollout additional onsite renewable projects across its property portfolio.
