One-Quarter of Australian Homes Have Solar in 2017

November 16, 2017

New data has confirmed a second rooftop solar boom taking place around Australia which has been driven by falling technology costs and increasingly volatile electricity prices.
Nearly one quarter of all Australian households found to have invested in solar panels.


The survey shows that on average almost one in four Australian households (23.2 per cent) own a “Home Solar Electric Panel”, as at March 2017.

The most are in South Australia, at 32.8 per cent; then Queensland, at 30.2 per cent; and Western Australia, at 26.6 per cent.
The numbers are in keeping with the findings of May 2017 data from SunWiz, which suggested Australian households, as well as businesses, were installing rooftop solar PV at a rate not seen since 2012.

New South Wales and Tasmania find themselves competing with each other at 17.7% and 17.3% falling just behind NT which stayed at 18.2% of households.
