Epic solar install for Epiq Marketplace at Lennox

One of the best features of the newly opened Epiq Marketplace shopping centre at Lennox Head is on the roof. The owners, Clarence Property, have invested in a 300 kW solar system.

Considering the new shopping centre in Hutley Drive will use an estimated 735,000 kW per annum, this massive solar system will provide up to 55% of the annual energy usage of the main mall area. The work was done by Gem Energy.

Kellé Murphy, Retail Communications Manager for Clarence Property, said that sustainability has been at the forefront of the developer’s approach at Lennox.

She said Epiq Marketplace is part of Stage 5 of the environmentally certified Epiq Lennox development, which is transforming this former farming area while trying to protect the environmental values of the central wetlands.

The first stores to open, Woolworths and BWS, had a massive first weekend, with 4500 customers through the doors.

Clarence Property managing director Peter Fahey said Epiq Marketplace will create over 300 jobs once complete. Woolworths alone has 30 local staff working in store, and further local employment is planned.

‘Research suggests when money is invested locally there is a multiplier effect that benefits the whole community,’ said Mr Fahey, ‘so this shopping centre is really the next chapter in Lennox Head’s growth.’
