We found solar in Australia’s hot, humid north will degrade fastest, while solar in the arid interior and more moderate climates down south will fare better.

Key Points: 
  • We found solar in Australia’s hot, humid north will degrade fastest, while solar in the arid interior and more moderate climates down south will fare better.
  • When you’re looking to install solar on your rooftop, the warranty will likely be a factor in your eventual choice.
  • The reason the power output drops at all is that solar panels slowly degrade over time.
  • Solar farms would be able to produce less power and might have to replace panels due to failure more often.
