In 2020 residential solar systems in Australia made up the bulk of historical installations. Falling system costs have encouraged households to install larger configurations to offset expensive retail electricity bills, and as a result, today nearly one over four households has a solar PV system installed on the roof. But we are not just talking about households: increasingly, commercial and industrial businesses are generating their own energy.

After the early stages of Covid-19 pandemic, when the virus spread resulted in slowing down installation rates in the first few months of the year, rooftop solar installations had returned to normal. As a matter of fact, despite the impact of COVID-19 on Australian market, in 2020 Rooftop solar PV installations grew 18% in the country, with 333,978 installations for a total of 2.9GW capacity.

According to 2020 Australia Solar Year in Review Report released by SunWiz, a leading provider of strategic consulting to Australian solar industry, the majority of PV modules circulating in Australia rooftop segment were mainly provided by tier 1 PV module manufacturers. Among them, JinkoSolar captured the highest market share of 22% in Australian DG market, ranking first in the national rooftop segment.
