Rooftop solar still popular
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.
