The Australian Solar Council has paid tribute to the millions of Aussies living in solar households with an infographic showing the strong benefits of solar energy.

It shows that by 2015-16, small scale solar will save all electricity customers more than it costs.

From the existing solar PV and hot water installations in Australia alone, by 2020 we will reduce carbon emissions by 93,000,000 tons.

CEO of the council, John Grimes, believes the Government should stand up and take notice.

“The Prime Minister says he wants to slash power bills, well five million Australians could tell him the best way slash bills is to have more solar”.
