I was so impressed to read recently that our post code, 4670, has the most solar power systems in the whole country! This must mean that most of our streets now have at least some solar power on the rooftops, and we will all know someone who has seen the benefits of this investment. Obviously our wonderful weather has a lot to do with the popularity of solar power here; did you know Bargara was once voted to be one of the 5 most liveable locations in the world? How lucky we are.
The Clean Energy Council of Australia’s latest report* gave some really exciting statistics. Some examples of these are:
- By the end of 2013, the total number of residential solar systems installed throughout Australia was 1.2million.
- Bundaberg’s postcode area has 8,015 solar power installations, the highest number in the whole of Australia. Hervey Bay area came fourth with 6,525 installations, and Gympie was at number eleven with 4,622 installations.
- The Sunshine State has eight of the top ten post codes for solar installations. That’s over 30% of Australia’s solar power, more than any other state.
- In 2007, just over 1 mega watt of solar power was installed in Qld. Only six years later, in 2013, this total had rocketed to over 1,000 mega watts. That’s a whole lot of Queenslanders saving money on their electricity bills.
