Solar Power Australia

According to the Clean Energy Council, more than one in ten households is generating electricity from rooftop solar panels. As of January 2013, installed capacity of solar PV (photovoltaic, the standard panels) was a whisker short of 2,500 MW, with an average system size of 3.5 kW. Householders and businesses alike cite concerns about the rising cost of energy as a major reason for investing in solar units.
