Sunlight is an incredible source of energy for earth. Solar power is the technology used to harness the sun's energy and make it useable. Today, the technology produces less than one tenth of one percent of global energy demand.
Australia leads the world in household solar panel installations. By 2016 more than one in seven Australian households had installed solar PV. This is a 16.5 per cent penetration rate across all Australian households.
Solar energy has recently been reinvented in Australia with the introduction of the Tesla Powerwall home battery. Before solar battery storage options, extra energy from the sun was sent straight back through the grid or wasted altogether. Now solar owners can take charge of the sun's energy, day and night.
