2020 was a hard year for most industries, it was impossible to predict what could and would happen by the end of the year. The majority of the solar energy installation specialist managed to remain in business during the terrible coronavirus pandemic. The last few months have been worrying, to say the least, with changes taking place in the renewable energy industry with more people adopting the renewable energy solution by the end of the year, which has resulted in 2021 starting on a very positive note.
The start of 2020 was setting new records in solar energy and panel installations than the first nine months of the previous year. This included an increase in demand in domestic properties, seeing tremendous growth in just about every Australian state during the first few months of the year.
When COVID-19 hit Australia in March, the solar industry was more than forty percent ahead of itself than the previous year. Even with the mandated operation shutdowns, the solar industry continues to grow at exponential rates throughout Australia with capacity increasing by approximately three percent per annum. There was a 2.9% annual growth in the first nine months of 2020.
Joe Springer, the Manager at Springers Solar, said “With the horrific bush fires experienced early in the year, along with the COVID-19 pandemic, there was a significant acceleration in demand for solar energy with more households and businesses looking for ways to increase their self-sufficiency and reduce their concerns regarding the environment. We saw another surge at the end of the second quarter of last year when people were working from home and working on ways to improve their self-sufficiency.”
Solar panels remain a reliable investment for homeowners and business owners who are looking to improve financial security when it comes to their property energy needs. With people now working from home full time, they are looking at ways to reduce their expenses in this new year, one of the ways is to add solar energy to the property. The future of solar continues to look positive for Brisbane in 2021.
