Rooftop solar PV installation rates in Australia are breaking all previous records. March saw the highest number of rooftop systems ever installed in the country, worth a capacity of some 127 MW.
Its clear that Australia is in the midst of a sustained rooftop solar boom as the signs continue to mount. After approx 115 MW was installed on Australian rooftops in February, a near record month, March has sailed past that figure to become the new champion month for rooftop solar.
The figures were revealed in Green Energy Markets’ (GEM) Renewable Energy Index bulletin for the month of March.The Index reveals that 18,237 small-scale solar systems were installed in the month.
GEM estimates that the systems will deliver combined savings of $225 million to householders over their operational lifetime!
“Capacity installed in the first quarter of this year is 56% higher than the same time last year, which was a record-breaking year for capacity,” writes GEM’s Tristan Edis in the March Index.
