Australia has installed more than 100MW of rooftop solar for the seventh consecutive month as households and businesses accelerate their uptake of the technology to stave off the soaring cost of grid electricity.
New data from Green Energy Markets shows 109MW was installed in April, down from March but this was expected given the Easter and Anzac Day holidays.
“This is the seventh month in a row that capacity has exceeded 100MW. While April was down on the prior month (March was an all-time record for capacity) it is up 63% on April last year,” says GEM analyst Tristan Edis.
