Ellenbrook Shopping Centre – WA

Solar Canopies, Ellenbrook Shopping Centre WA


In 2020 Specialised Solar Solutions completed their largest solar project to date at a shopping centre in Ellenbrook, Western Australia.

Over the two stages, Specialised Solar Solutions manufactured and installed over 1.5mw of solar canopies providing much-needed shade.

Using Specialised Solar Solutions’ patented system the solar panels provided a watertight canopy and a smart cable management system which eliminated the visibility of any unsightly cables. The install of the panels was undertake safely using our clamping system securing the panel from the underside of the canopy. This also provides the added benefit and ease of maintenance.

With the install being completed in Western Australia using a mix of expert local sub-contractors and Specialised Solar Solutions employees, and with manufacturing of the canopies being completed in South Australia, Specialised Solar Solutions demonstrated the ability to successfully manage and execute large solar infrastructure projects nationwide.

Stage 1 of the project was constructed in an existing car park close to an entrance to the shopping centre. The delivery and install of the structures was staged to minimise disruption to the shopping centre while maintaining as many parking spaces as possible.

The second stage was constructed over the roof top carpark, on a suspended slab.

The project demonstrates how retrofitting solar canopies can be undertaken successfully, and how easy designing the canopies into a new rooftop install can be undertaken.
