Z-NET Uralla has been tracking the official statistics on installations of small scale solar (mainly rooftop solar). Up until October 2016 growth in the increase of solar in our community was positive but slow (5-6%) compared to the rest of Australia. But we have taken off since then – now on par with the rest of NSW at 28%, and since July 2017 we may have even have exceeded national growth in solar!
There is 3-4 month lag between installation date and the data making its way into the statistics, so we will keep an eye on new information as it comes to hand.
Well done Uralla Shire and community! The choices of individuals (home owners, landlords and businesses) can make a difference as we move along the path to 100% renewable energy.
