Residential solar installations in Canberra accounted for 18.4 megawatts of capacity in 2018, up from 9 megawatts in 2017. The 104.4 per cent growth rate over that year was the biggest in Australia.

Also, commercial installations more than doubled, with 4.4 megawatts of capacity installed in 2018, up 109.5 per cent on the 2.1 megawatts added the previous year.

However, the overall proportion of Canberra homes with rooftop solar is lagging behind the national average. While 15 percent of ACT homes have rooftop solar, across Australia 20.3 per cent of homes have solar panels.
