Rooftop so­lar still pop­u­lar

Pinjarra Murray Times - - NEWS -

FEWER than 17,000 house­holds and small busi­nesses in Man­durah have made the switch to re­new­able en­ergy.

This still makes the City the fourth high­est lo­ca­tion for rooftop so­lar in Aus­tralia.

Small-scale Re­new­able En­ergy Scheme post­code data re­leased by the Clean En­ergy Reg­u­la­tor re­flects a ge­o­graph­i­cally di­verse spread of in­stal­la­tions, par­tic­u­larly in sub­ur­ban, re­gional and ru­ral ar­eas of Queens­land, Vic­to­ria and West­ern Aus­tralia.

Over a decade 23 per cent more Aus­tralians have em­braced rooftop so­lar. This means one in five homes and busi­nesses gen­er­ate their own re­new­able en­ergy and re­duce car­bon emis­sions through rooftop so­lar.

Last month Aus­tralia hit a mile­stone of 6000megawatt ca­pac­ity across 2.8 mil­lion small-scale in­stal­la­tions of re­new­able en­ergy sys­tems, enough to power 1.8 mil­lion homes.
