The right way to value solar

As more Australians install PV on their rooftops, and as panel prices continue to fall, we need to determine what solar power is really worth. So what are the right ways – and the wrong ways – to value solar?

Australian households have installed over 1,000 megawatts of small-scale solar PV, and there will be more installed as module prices continue their fall. Now is the time to resolve confusion about the value of solar power, "grid parity" and the role of support mechanisms for solar PV. How do we decide what solar PV is worth? What does this mean for feed-in tariffs and the concept of grid parity?
