Australian Rooftop Solar Installations Went Up By Half To Reach Record 1GW in 2017

Australia exceeded 1 gigawatts of rooftop solar panels for the first time last year, with the market set to expand further this year  as reported by The Global Trade Review.

Australia added about 1.078 gigawatts of new rooftop solar capacity last year which beat the last record set in 2012 by 14%. The government-owned Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) has surpassed the 1GW of solar investments funded Last December. The 80MWOakey park solar farm in Queensland on the other has secured $55 million in CEFC debt for the second stage of its development, with an initial loan of $19.5 million.
