    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    Industry operators install, maintain and certify small-scale household photovoltaic (PV) systems, which are more commonly referred to as solar panels. Fees for installation services account for the largest share of industry revenue. This trend contributes to significant revenue volatility because industry players have historically depended on regulation-induced demand from households. Household PV adoption initially grew exponentially due to more expensive electricity bills, major government subsidies and solar panel cost reductions. Over the past five years, all state and territory governments have also provided feed-in tariffs for households, which has encouraged the uptake of solar panels...

    What is the Solar Panel Installation industry?

    Industry operators generate most of their revenue from installing and certifying new solar panels. Solar panel repair and maintenance services are also included in the industry. Contractors and tradespeople typically install solar panel systems and any related components and parts on behalf of electricity retailing companies and other solar panel retailers. Industry revenue therefore excludes the cost of the physical solar cells, although the cost of these solar cells can affect demand for industry services. Industry players have been well placed to benefit from the rapid household adoption of solar panels over the past five years. The total installed household solar power generation capacity has grown from 817 megawatts in 2010-11 to 4,459 megawatts in 2014-15...
