Australian pain in a solar price hike

The PV sector has faced a harrowing couple of years, but the latest signs in Australia show that global manufacturers are finally starting to stop the bleeding. But that won't help the local sector.

I posted a story recently on some of the fascinating findings from our latest report “Australian PV – Technology and Brands 2013”. Although I’m running a little later than I would like on getting this out, the deeper I dig, the more insights I find – and this week we have yet another doozy which is forcing me to rethink some of my assumptions.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve seen evidence of no less than four price rises from PV manufacturers shipping into Australia. That’s right; PV prices are starting to increase.
