    Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

    The Solar Panel Installation industry's 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, as industry players have historically depended on regulation-induced demand from households. The adoption of PV systems by households initially grew exponentially due to rising electricity bills, major government subsidies and solar panel cost reductions. Over the past five years, all state and territory governments have provided feed-in tariffs for households, which has encouraged the uptake of solar panels...

    What is the Solar Panel Installation industry?

    The spread of installed solar power capacity tends to follow the distribution of Australia’s population. As a result, demand for industry services typically tends to be greater in areas with larger populations. Australia’s three largest states, New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, are expected to account for just over 70% of total installed solar power capacity in 2017-18, while accounting for 77.3% of the total population.

    South Australia accounts for a much higher share of installed capacity than its population. South Australian households are well suited for solar panels due to the moderate to warm climate. In...
