Victoria’s Tarneit leads the charge with an impressive 2,177 solar installations, showcasing the suburb’s strong commitment to sustainable energy. Following closely is Box Hill in NSW, shining brightly with 2,152 installations.

Queensland also makes a significant mark on the renewable energy landscape. Winfield in the Bundaberg region stands out with 1,735 installations, turning heads with its substantial investment in solar power. Further down the coast, Caloundra and Mackay are not just known for their scenic beauty but also as pioneers in the solar movement, each boasting installations in the thousands.

Victoria’s Roxburgh Park and Queensland’s Maryborough demonstrate that suburban areas can transform rooftops into power stations, with 1,475 and 1,466 installations respectively. Meanwhile, Kellyville in NSW follows closely with 1,442 installations, further underscoring the widespread adoption of renewable energy across the nation.

“These findings are a testament to the growing momentum of renewable energy across Australia,” says Anthony Kurta, Managing Director and CEO of Solar Run. “Communities are increasingly recognising the benefits of solar power, not just for the environment but also for economic resilience. Our report highlights the leaders in this green revolution and emphasises the importance of continued support and investment in clean energy.”

Glen Ollerton, Director at MDP Architecture, also commented on the growing demand for energy-efficient homes: “The rising cost of living pressures are a concern for everyone in the community, including homeowners and the rental market. In particular, the rising energy costs bring into focus the immediate impact on people’s financial landscapes. Keeping our homes warm, cool and lit is a staple requirement of every house. Clients are now asking, How can we reduce our energy bills? That is often the question that opens the door about sustainability and what it means to them and the environment.”

Solar Run’s analysis provides valuable insights for policy makers, industry stakeholders and the general public, encouraging a collaborative effort towards a more sustainable and energy-independent future. The report emphasises the need for ongoing support for renewable energy initiatives and the pivotal role of local communities in driving national progress.
