The Royal Melbourne Hospital will be saving on energy costs and reducing carbon dioxide emissions thanks to new solar panels installed at three of our sites.


Boyne Russell and Cyril Jewell House, our residential aged care facilities, and also RMH Royal Park have both been decked out recently with more than 500 panels.

These will help reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 400 tonnes every year. 

“It was truly motivating to be involved in the effort to reduce our environmental impact and be part of a project that will contribute significantly to our sustainability goals,” said project manager Tugce, pictured in the middle with members of the engineering and Boyne Russell teams involved in the project.

“This will help us improve our energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which is a step towards a more sustainable future.”

This project was funded by the Victorian Health Building Authority through the Victorian Government's Energy Efficiency and Solar Program.
