Australia is a country full of sun: There are around 3,300 hours of sunshine per year in Perth, home to Australian grid operator Western Power in the state of Western Australia. In comparison, MR headquarters in Regensburg gets just about 1,600 hours of sunshine. It is no wonder that Australia is currently the country with the highest rate of energy production by photovoltaics in the world. Currently, 2.3 million solar units are installed on Australian roofs. As a result, nearly a gigawatt of energy is fed in, with an expected additional 150 megavolt amperes per year in the coming years.
