Importance of Australian market

Australia continues to be a key market for Schletter, and ranks as one of the company’s top three markets worldwide. The new alliance with Solar Juice in testimony to Schletter’s commitment to Australia. The country’s rooftop solar market is doing really well as there is considerable policy support from federal and state governments for PV systems less than 10kW, and residential electricity prices are very high compared to those of other countries. Both the sunny climate and the fact that a large percentage of Australia’s houses are stand-alone structures with large roof spaces make it a region conducive to solar. The average rooftop solar size has grown from 1,34kW in 2009 to 7,13kW in 2018.
