Centre of Sustainable Excellence
Ripley Town Centre has implemented several sustainability initiatives to secure a 5 Star Green Star Design and As Built accreditation.
This includes the installation of 1800 individual photovoltaic solar panels, with the majority to be installed on the 360 vehicle carpark shade structures as part of the 480kW system that will help generate a sizable portion of the town centre's power needs at peak times.
The solar system will not only reduce demand on the grid at peak times, but also lower costs for tenants within Ripley Town Centre and ensure the town centre meets the needs of the community well into the future.
Sustainability is a primary objective for the Ripley Town Centre. This commitment involves the implementation of innovative design and management to achieve high indoor environment quality, energy and water saving, and a selection of low impact materials to minimize the impact on the local ecology.
