Electricity is essential for our every-day lives for lighting rooms, providing home Wi-Fi and powering domestic appliances like ovens and stove-tops. With so many people throughout 2020 having to work from home, a stable power supply is crucial for not only modern life but also to maintain work commitments.
Over the past decade, the solar industry has boomed. In 2018, the number of Australian households with solar PV installations reached 2 million. That’s an average of six solar panels installed per minute!

ABC News reports that almost 700 solar companies have gone out of business since 2011, leaving about 650,000 Australians without warranties if their systems fault.
