Even in the middle of a pandemic, Australians are investing in what counts for their energy supply. The solar boom has continued with consumer confidence increasing in 2020 compared to 2019.
Kane Thornton, chief executive of the Clean Energy Council, said the momentum was coming from State Government initiatives, with confidence in Queensland increasing on the confidence level from 5.6 to 6.8.
Green Energy Markets has tracked a record 1357MW of new rooftop solar photovoltaics between January and June 2020, which is 40 per cent higher than the same period in 2019.
Tristan Edis of Green Energy Markets said “We keep hearing about a possible COVID-19 slowdown – but it hasn’t happened. It’s a major uptick on last year – which was a stellar year.”
Solar Installation in Australia continues to break records
If the pace continues? “By 2025, Australia will have more installed solar capacity than the country’s coal-fired power.”
And Brisbane business owners and residents are not missing out.
Chris Beecham, of Beecham Holden installed an 81kW system with NuWay Solar. The 270 solar panels cover an area of 460 square metres – that’s the size of a building block!
“We’re a local family business,” said Chris, “and we were pleased to get such professional advice from another local family business in NuWay Solar.”
