Australia Solar — State-by-State Chart

Originally published on Renew Economy.

Australia’s solar market may have fallen off is peaks, but it is still showing healthy growth, with a rising share of commercial based systems, particularly in NSW and South Australia.

This graph, from Green Energy Markets’ latest report, gives a fascinating insight into the state of the market in Australia (you can click on the graph to enlarge).

It gives the installation rate by MW of rooftop solar in each state. Some of the installation will be influenced by the timing of changes to various state-based feed-in tariffs.

But it is clear that Queensland remains the leader, and in recent months has actually accelerated its growth – adding at least 20MW in each of the months of February, March, April and May. At an average installation size of 4kW, that’s at least 5,000 new systems a month.

NSW and South Australia are installing the most commercial-scale solar.
