The Australian solar industry is starting to hit its stride as the uptake of renewable energy continues to increase both nationally and internationally. Multiple projects go into development all the time throughout Australia, helping to make our future look a whole lot brighter.
There’s still plenty that people don’t know about solar energy, so here are 6 facts about solar energy in Australia.
The Australian solar industry has grown significantly over the past decade and is expected to continue expanding with new solar farms and residential solar projects going into development all the time. The growth has been largely driven by new large-scale solar farms which have increased industry electricity generation from less than 50 Megawatts in 2014 to over 2,400 Megawatts in 2018. There are plenty of new solar farms planned over the next few years meaning the industry is well positioned to continue growing throughout Australia.
The solar industry has seen rapid technological advancement over the past 30 years. Solar battery options are improving all the time and the growing manufacturing industry has reduced the prices of solar batteries considerably than what they were 5-10 years ago. As the prices of solar batteries drop, it’s becoming an increasingly smart decision to add a solar battery to your solar system to make the most out of your solar.
Over 2 million Australian homes have made the switch to solar with more households installing solar every day. We’re one of the largest adopters of solar energy here in Australia and our push for energy independence is growing.
