Solar energy usage in Australia has significantly increased during the 21st century as state governments, businesses, and communities embrace a more sustainable energy production lifestyle. Solar energy was responsible for 5.2% of Australia’s total electrical energy production in 2018 which has increased to 7.5% in 2019. Australia has the potential to install 197 GW of rooftop solar power; however, as of 2020, Australia has only just achieved 10 GW. There is an explicit rise in the usage of solar energy in Australia. It is up to government-based programs, industry-led initiatives, and solar energy corporations to decrease the reliance on fossil fuels and propel Australia into the number one position for solar energy production and exportation.
Right now, in 2021, we are seeing a sizeable consistent increase in the number of homeowners and businesses switching to solar and energy storage. Over 20,000 homes across Australia have experienced the benefits of the LG RESU. We are passionate about helping Australian’s power their homes and businesses with renewable energy. By supporting the renewable energy industry, we are helping to increase thousands of renewable jobs, lower power bills, and help save the environment.
