Which Shire suburbs have the most solar?


Over 16% of all households in Australia have solar PV installed. That’s over 1.5 million Australian households that enjoy the benefits of solar! The figure for NSW is around 14%.  So how does the Sutherland Shire compare?

Our top 5 postcodes all have more than 10% solar households, as shown in the table below.

Our smallest postcode, 2172 – Sandy Point, steals the show with 22.4% of dwellings getting energy from the sun.

Just under 10% of all dwellings in the Sutherland Shire have solar – that’s around 6,200 households across the Shire. A rate far below the NSW and national averages.

Which suburbs could lift their game? The bottom 3 postcodes (out of 12) are shown below:

We have a lot of work to do! Every house without solar is spending more than they need on electricity. This is money that could be spent in our local economy.
