Planned solar panels for the roof of the General Post Office in Hamilton.

A plan to set up solar panels on the roof of two Government buildings in Hamilton has been submitted to the Department of Planning.

It is proposed to install a total of 588 panels on the roof of the Government Administration Building and the neighbouring General Post Office at the junction of Court Street and Parliament Street.

The panels are expected to have the capacity to generate a combined 211.68kW of electricity.

The Government earlier announced plans to install solar panels on several buildings, including the two in the application.

Other Government buildings earmarked for solar panels include Global House in Hamilton, and the bus garage in Devonshire.
