Solar’s record push in Australia

Solar PV installations hit a record high in 2011, a new report shows, and this week’s graphs of the week highlight the remarkable extent of PV growth since 2008.

The rise of solar PV has been rapid in Australia, with installations surging since 2008. The staggering degree of growth, illustrated in the first graph of the week below, has led to solar PV claiming 3 per cent of the electricity generation capacity in Australia and a 1 per cent share of consumption, according to the Australian PV Association’s PV in Australia 2011 report.
