Rise and rise of solar in Australia

Solar power adoption in Australia has shown impressive growth recently - in both rooftop and ground mounted segments

While the growth of solar power plants is impressive worldwide, it is even more so in Australia.

End of 2020, Australia had a total electricity generation of about 80 GW, of which about 20 GW was solar. Almost 70% of the solar capacity added in the previous two years alone.

Even more noteworthy is the growth of rooftop solar that added over 2.5 GW in 2020 alone with over 300,000 installations - impressive for a country that has just over 8 million households.

Great going.
