1 million Aussie homes to have solar panel within 12 months

More evidence (if you really needed it) of how much Australian's love solar:

"858,000 homes have solar PV panels with an installed capacity of just under 2 gigawatts"

According to the story in the SMH, with current rates of uptake, we'll hit the million mark in the middle of 2013, by which time over 10% of homes will have rooftop solar panels (read more here).

Also, last week saw the switch flicked on Australia's first "utility scale" solar farm/ power plant in WA. It's just 10 Mw, but with the price of solar panels still decreasing hopefully it will be the first of many.


  1. Solar is the fastest energy source in whole world. Here I get such nice information about many homes have solar panel installed just used 2 gigawattes. You have done great work.

  2. Solar energy can be described as the energy that is received from the sunlight and converted by a mechanical source for home use.
