Solar energy is energy that's generated from the light and heat which radiates from the sun. This energy is captured and then used to generate electricity that can be used in your home. Solar power is a form of renewable energy, which means it is collected from renewable resources and replenishes naturally, lowering a household’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Did you know Australia has the highest average solar radiation per square metre than any other continent in the world? In fact, we receive nearly 10,000x more picojoules of solar radiation per year, than we actually consume.
This makes Australia the perfect country for solar energy - and households have caught on! Solar power systems have become incredibly popular among Australian households, with nearly 2 million rooftop systems already installed across Australia.
