Wanneroo a hot spot
SUBURB SECOND IN SOLAR PANELS
WANNEROO has the second highest number of solar rooftop panels in Perth, according to figures released by Western Power.
The statistics listed its networks’ top 10 solar suburbs in Perth. Wanneroo was second with 6687 panels, behind Mandurah with 9192.
The majority of suburbs were south of the river, with Ocean Reef/Joondalup the only other northern suburb to make the cut, coming in at 10th spot with 3926 panels.
Western Power said the northern suburbs had a potential generation capacity of nearly 230 megawatts and figures were based on the number of physical photovoltaic solar panel systems per postcode.
