Australia installed the highest number of rooftop solar PV panels in 2020, based on data analysed by top energy efficiency experts. Data used from the Clean Energy Regulator showed that more than three hundred and sixty thousand rooftop PV solar installations were given small-scale renewable energy scheme certificates, an increase of twenty-eight percent on the year before.
In 2019 there were over two hundred and eighty-three thousand installations with most being residential and a few being for commercial and industrial purposes. Technology and science have made renewable energy competitive in price, when compared to conventional power, allowing solar to take over and drive a global transition into lowering emissions for the future.
The demand for solar energy in Australia is a fantastic economic opportunity for the country, showing their passion for reducing their carbon footprint and their impact on the environment, supplying renewable energy, a sustainable solution for commercial, industrial and residential properties.
When it comes to the thousands of panels installed last year and the record number of installations, New South Wales led the demand with more than one hundred thousand rooftop PV solar systems installed, followed by Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia.
Joe Springer, the Manager at Springers Solar in Lawnton and Capalaba in Australia, said “Australia has the highest uptake of solar energy in the world with over 2.68 million rooftop solar systems having been installed, which means that one in every four homes has a solar panel on their roof, that is staggering statistics. Australia is a sunny country and therefore we can lead the way in PV capacity on a per capita basis, which is 591 watts per person, eight times the global average.”
The demand for rooftop PV solar panels is believed to be due to the increased work-from-home arrangements, along with lower technology costs, along with people looking for ways to save money when it comes to their energy usage.
