1 Million Homes!

Australia has just reached the significant milestone of 1 million houses with solar power.

1 million Australian homes powered by solar power

This is quite significant, because in 2008 it was just 20,000. Now it's 50 times that. David Green (CEO, Clean Energy Council) said that:

"For some years solar has been most enthusiastically embraced by those in mortgage-belt suburbs, retirement areas and regional parts of the country. People from all walks of life have been installing solar as a way of protecting themselves from power price pain over the long term."

Hopefully programs like Every Rooftop can help even more people access solar power.

Tomorrow: Which states have the most?
