Aussie Solar Energy Boom Predicted for 2018

We’re in the midst of a solar energy boom. Analysts say that a record number of solar panels were installed in Australia in 2017 – a total of 9,500 panels installed across the country daily. The sunshine state is fast becoming the “solar state”, with Queensland home to the largest number of residents with solar panels installed in their homes. This trend is expected to continue rising, with residential rooftop solar installations on the up this year. More than 100MW of registrations were recorded in January 2018, delivering the best start to a year ever, according to Renew Economy.

Three Benefits of Solar:

  • Save money on power bills.
  • Increase property value.
  • Reduce carbon footprint.

Why Does The Boom Drive Need For Solar ERP?

IBISWorld reports that the demand for solar is increasing inline with Australia’s growing population. Demand for industry services tends to be greater in areas with larger populations, so it’s not surprising that between Australia’s three largest states – New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, they account for just above 70%  of total installed solar capacity in 2017-18. The solar industry is expanding rapidly, but it faces both business and technology challenges. The nature of the industry is complex; solar installation companies require a broad range of features to be able to manage their entire business processes in one system, in addition to the mobile nature of their workforce. This brings the need for seamless access to systems, whether it’s in the office or out in the field. NetSuite provides solar installation companies with an outstanding solution as it covers every aspect of the business, from sales and marketing, financials and accounting, to job costing, manufacturing and field service.
