Australian Skyscraper Uses PV

April 24, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] The New Hall Chadwick Centre in Brisbane, Australia is the first tall building in that country to use solar panels in its design. The building was constructed by FKP Constructions and has more than 300 solar panels incorporated into its sides. Having been developed jointly by FKP and Energex, the building is capable of producing sufficient energy for most of its own lighting and back-up power supply. It is estimated that the Renewable Energy created by the building will displace 77 tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year.
