“The growth of solar power was one of the stories of 2011 following a record year in 2010, when 380 MW of solar power was installed. As at the end of August 2011, 1031 MW of solar power was installed across the country, representing more than half a million household systems. This is more than nine times the amount of solar power installed as at the end of 2009 and more than 35 times the total installed just three years ago in 2008. More than 230,000 of these systems were installed in the eight months from January to August 2011.”

It matters to keep this in perspective because there are so many misconceptions about solar in the marketplace.
Due to various changes in rebates (upfront benefit) and tariffs (ongoing benefit) there are people who assume solar is “over”. In fact, we often here “oh, isn’t that all finished?”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Solar is cheaper now than it has ever been.
Government assistance is no longer needed to make solar a great investment in your home or business – in most cases it will pay for itself in 5-6 years.
Solar currently accounts for almost 10% of all power production, so it is becoming a major force.
