 PV installations since April 2001: total capacity (kW)


2002 - 2017


The above graphs show the rated capacity of solar PV installed in each month. The rate of installations has been influenced by changes in the policy mechanisms that have supported this technology.

Significant peaks in monthly installations are attributable to the closures of the Solar Bonus Schemes in New South Wales (May 2011) and Queensland (July 2012), and changes to the Solar Multiplier that determines the number of Renewable Energy Certificates for which new installations are eligible (5x multiplier ended July 2011; 3x in July 2012; 2x in Jan 2013).
