The Clean Energy Council provides fact sheets on a variety of renewable energy including solar power and myths and facts about solar.
Whilst there may be general misconceptions around the fact that solar panels are expensive, the truth is that as the cost of production decreases along with the improvements and innovations in solar technology, solar panels have become a much more affordable solution today.
In addition to this, the high uptake of solar panels has created thousands of jobs in Australia. Clean Energy Council statistics show that it is estimated that there are 39 jobs directly supported in Australia for every 1 megawatt (MW) of solar installed.
Household solar has also helped reduce the country’s energy demand according to the Australian Energy Market Operator.
