2018 was a record year for the Australian PV Industry in residential, sub-100kW commercial, and >100kW commercial rooftop segments. But it was also a record-smashing year for solar farms.
Using data from the RenewEconomy/SunWiz Large Scale Lookout service, let’s look at where all of that solar went in.
Activity was spread across Queensland, inland NSW, Northern Victoria, and Port Augusta (SA). Even from the map you can see that 2018 was a record year for solar farms – a fact confirmed by the corresponding chart below.
Australia currently has more solar farms under construction that its total capacity of currently operational Solar Farms (1.9GW). You can therefore reasonably expect that 2019 will set another record volume for solar farms commissioned.
