According to the Australian Photovoltaic Institute, Australia's solar output will soon have reached a record high 6 gigawatts. Growing concerns about gas and electricity prices have pushed residents and businesses to invest in alternative energy sources.

Commercial solar has increased to almost 13% of total solar capacity in Australia and there's a lot more room to grow.

Here is an excerpt from the article.

New figures from the Australian Photovoltaic Institute show the country has passed 6 gigawatts of solar capacity as of the end of March, or enough to supply about 1.3 million households.

"There's been just a huge surge recently on the back of the energy concerns earlier in the year," Renate Egan, chair of the institute, told Fairfax Media. 

Total capacity could top 7 gigawatts within a year with a host of solar farms and a rise in companies turning to solar driving the extra demand. That level would be the equivalent of about 1.5 million households' supply, or about Sydney's size.
