As of 9th November 2021, there are now over THREE MILLION installations of solar power systems in Australia.
Australia leads the world in the uptake of solar power systems, and has 22% more solar power than any other country on a per-capita basis (even after accounting for other countries with a smaller number of very-large solar farms.)

Solar market analyst Warwick Johnston, the Managing Director of SunWiz, said passing three million solar installations is a remarkable milestone.
“Thanks to our homeowners, Australia leads the world in per-capita uptake of solar power – 22 per cent higher per capita than Germany or Japan in 2020, according to the International Energy Agency,” Mr Johnston said.
“The transformation of Australia’s carbon-intensive electricity supply has been led by households directly investing in solar power on their homes. Not just because it benefits the planet – because it makes financial sense to do so.”
“Thanks to Australia’s highly-efficient solar workforce, Australia is one of the lowest-cost countries for a rooftop installation. Our abundant sunshine, large homes and high electricity prices combine to make paybacks in Australia shorter than in most other countries.”
