Sunny Electorates

Analysis of Australian Solar Electorates (Commonwealth) 

SunWiz has performed analysis of Clean Energy Regulator data to identify the top solar electorates. Use the interactive explorer below to identify the number of solar systems in your electorate. This will help you identify how popular solar has already become in your electorate, or how popular it stands to become.

The interactive dashboard allows you to zoom in on a particular area. Hover over a sun icon to identify the electorate and its details. Hover over a name in the list of top electorates (by such measures as top # systems, and top penetration), and its location and other details will be highlighted in the other sheets. Each element can also be viewed in its own separate tab. Analysis methodology and static maps are also shown further down the page.

Methodology:

  1. SunWiz identified the percentage of each postcode located within each electorate by using the ABS Australian Statistical Geography Standard tables of postcode (POA vs SA1) and Commonwealth Electorate Division (CED vs SA1), joined on the SA1 identifier http://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/DetailsPage/1270.0.55.003July%202011?OpenDocument
  2. SunWiz took information published by the Clean Energy Regulator about the number of installations in each postcode as of 1st October 2012. http://ret.cleanenergyregulator.gov.au/REC-Registry/Data-reports. Where an electoral boundary crosses through a postcode, solar uptake within that  postcode is apportioned as per the land area from step #1.
  3. SunWiz identified the number of dwellings in each postcode from the 2011 Census published in Table Builder by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. https://www.censusdata.abs.gov.au/webapi/jsf/login.xhtml. Penetration (percentage of dwellings with a solar system) was calculated by the sum of the systems in that area (electorate) divided by the sum of dwellings in that area (electorate). Where an electoral boundary crosses through a postcode, the number of dwellings within that  postcode is apportioned as per the land area from step #1.

Industry Intelligence

SunWiz's range of Market Intelligence products helps strategic Solar Businesses to track current trends, manage emerging risks, and forecast future volumes. This assists wise businesses to outsmart the competition.

 
Governments and NGOs also benefit from SunWiz's extensive knowledge of solar installation history, trends, and demographics.
 

Outsourced Engineering

We assist solar businesses to manage their growth profitably by outsourcing their engineeringThis typically comprises system design, performance evaluation, and project management.

 

Outsourcing helps businesses manage peaks and troughs in business, and enables businesses to grow and tackle new jobs with confidence.

Warwick is one of the foremost experts on the Australian Solar PV market full stop. 
My job is to provide media commentary on the Australian renewable energy sector and the Australian energy market more generally and I regularly call upon him to keep me informed on key aspects of the Australian solar market using the most up to date data available. 
If you want to know about how the Australian solar market is evolving I'd put him up there with less than a handful of other individuals in the country.

My experience with SunWiz dates back to 2009 where I asked Warwick to consult to a then little start up: Bright Generation. In my opinion Warwick/ Sunwiz has been a key player in Australia's solar proliferation through providing insightful and timely, technical and commercial services to many domestic and international corporates. Where would we all be without Sunwiz's weekly market insights!

I would advocate for Warwick / Sunwiz for any commercial / technical support in residential, commercial or utility scale Solar. 

  Terry Davis

Terry Davis

Managing Director at Excel Solar Pty Ltd

Warwick is a very determined and knowledge young man with a passion for renewables. In particular solar PV systems. Warwick's technical knowledge is tempered by his business savvy and experience. He is always there to offer advice and guidance while learning as much as he can about the industry. 

While Warrick has always offered advise without leverage or remuneration, I do believe his experience, knowledge and professional advice when consulted is priceless and worth the investment. You can expect and will get great business results. 
Warwick has his "finger on the pulse" of the solar industry in Australia. He is an asset to the industry and a great supporter of solar photovoltaic's within Australia. 
I encourage any questions, of my recommendation, and can only hope that within the future the Industry retains and maintains this caliber of person.
