Rooftop solar power has taken Australia by storm, with more than 10% of suitable rooftops now decked out with solar panels across the country. Different sizes of solar PV systems have proliferated depending on which incentives & what prices were available at the time of installation, as well as on the electricity needs of the home or business in question.

Generally speaking, 10 kilowatts (kW) is the upper limit for residential solar systems in Australia because a system of this size will produce sufficient electricity to meet a home’s daytime electricity needs. An 8kW solar system–just between the 10kW upper limit and extremely popular 5kW solar systems–would be ideally suited for a home with slightly higher electricity demand than average.

As systems have grown more affordable, more and more Australians are opting for systems above the 5kW capacity range, with systems in the 7kW and 8kW capacity range gaining popularity as well.

Hi Solarchoice, would consider extending your pv business to Nigeria? I am looking for offshore technical partners to help me PV/Storage Battery engineering designs for construction and installation in Nigeria. I have electrical engineering background and would handle installation locally. Thank you

Hi Edmund. Thanks for the approach but we only operate in Australia and do not have plans to expand overseas at this point.
