With 20 per cent of Australian households capable of benefiting from residential solar energy having already installed solar power systems, the country has become firmly established as a world leader in solar energy.
Solar power has long ceased to be a fad or an optimistic ideal of environmentalists, as demonstrated by its huge presence in Australian homes and commercial premises. According to the REC Agents Association (RAA), 665,215 registered solar energy systems were installed in Australia between 2001 and March 2012, in addition to 574,503 solar hot water systems, and 149,420 air source heat pumps that also make use of solar technology. This demonstrates an acceptance and embracing of solar power by Australian citizens, not only for the potential savings they offer as traditional power sources become scarcer and more expensive, but also to help Australia achieve its Renewable Energy Target (RET).
The Australian Government has provided significant funding and support to homes and businesses to help with the cost of solar installation, often reducing this expense by up to 75 per cent. Through Solar Credits and other Renewable Energy Certificates (REC), solar installation has been made an affordable and realistic prospect for many Australians.
