WESTERN Australia’s first solar car park will provide 40 per cent of the electricity needed by its adjoining shopping centre.

The car park and shopping centre redevelopment in Northam will be officially unveiled by Minister for Regional Development Alannah MacTiernan on Tuesday morning.

There are close to 900 solar panels involved, which also provide shade from the summer sun.

Perdaman Group chairman Vikas Rambal says the project has been well received and he hopes to bring solar to more commercial properties.

The $15 million shopping centre redevelopment also includes adding 1200 solar panels to the building’s roof.
