One million solar rooftops target or 3000 MW solar PV
The Queensland Government has set a target of one million rooftops—or 3000 megawatts of solar photovoltaics (PV)— in Queensland by 2020. This goal was reached in October 2018 with over 3,000 megawatts of installed solar capacity.
Small and large-scale solar power is now generating more than 4,400 megawatts. This will help lower electricity costs for families and businesses, create jobs and protect the environment.
With over 580,000 solar systems connected, Queensland has the highest number of installations in Australia. This number continues to grow as solar PV is cheaper than grid-supplied electricity in many cases.
