What's next for solar in Australia?
The Australian Solar Council recently reported on a few major solar projects, including the massive 70 MW solar farm in Moree, Queensland, which is now underway. The Moree Solar Farm features single-axis tracking technology, which will enable it to save almost 95,000 tonnes of carbon pollution annually.
The new 1.06 MW system being installed at the Brisbane Markets in Queensland will be Australia's largest privately owned rooftop solar PV system and a major push forward for the commercial solar sector in Australia.9
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has a long list of other solar projects going on in Australia right now. You can check it out here.
Here at Origin, we’re preparing to build one of the largest rooftop solar PV systems in Australia by installing 25,000 square metres of solar on the roof of the former Mitsubishi main assembly building in Tonsley, Adelaide.
We’re also providing a new way for households to install solar on their roof, with the introduction of Solar as a Service. This innovative approach to solar means that instead of you, the householder, purchasing the solar system, we will own, install and maintain the rooftop solar system. Solar as a Service is only offered in certain areas and is subject to certain eligibility requirements.
This arrangement means that you have no upfront costs and are able to just buy the electricity your system generates at a lower rate as compared to the grid.
And if you’re interested in becoming one of the millions of Australian’s investing in solar for your home or business, take a look here at our solar options and see what system is right for you.
