With a population of over 60,000 people and located in a region enjoying more than 300 days of sunshine each year, Rockhampton is of course a tourist Mecca.
The city is also experiencing a boom in interest in solar power, which with its abundant sunshine it is in a particularly strong position to harvest. Early in Australia’s PV revolution, Summer Solar Barbecue events were held in Rockhampton and the level of interest among residents demonstrated the acceptance of one of the city’s greatest resources: that of solar energy.
Rockhampton was among the first sites to participate in the Queensland Governments solar for public housing trial, saving tenants a bundle of cash on their electricity bills. The city has also shown it’s not just keeping up with the times, but at the forefront of them, boasting one of the first schools in Australia to have solar panels + a Tesla Powerpack battery system installed.
According to information from Australia’s Clean Energy Regulator, more than 1,870 small scale solar systems with a collective capacity just shy of 10MW had been installed in Rockhampton's postcode by the end of June 2020.
