Solar generation beats inflation

Solar generation beats inflation! Australians are facing a significant challenge with soaring electricity costs, which are not expected to return to pre-pandemic levels until possibly as late as 2030. A report released by the CSIRO indicates that the costs of electricity generation have increased across all energy sources. This increase in technology costs, including the expenses associated with building and maintaining new technology such as coal-fired power stations or solar installations, has risen by an average of 20 percent, which is triple the rate of inflation.

Key points from the report include:

  1. Solar installations, both rooftop and large-scale PV, saw a 9 percent increase in costs.
  2. Onshore wind farms experienced a significant increase of 35 percent in costs.
  3. The costs associated with coal technologies, which still supply around 75 percent of Australia’s electricity market, rose by 22 to 24 percent.

The rising prices are attributed to various factors including global supply chain constraints due to the COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns, exacerbated by geopolitical events such as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which disrupted global supplies of gas. Additionally, the rapid transition from fossil fuels to renewables has increased demand for raw materials, further pushing up prices.

According to CSIRO modeling, if current government policies persist, Australia’s electricity prices may not return to pre-pandemic levels until 2027. However, if new policies accelerate the energy transition, the timeline for price normalization could extend out to 2030. Being self sufficient by installing your own solar energy generation system would help you to beat inflation and save you money.
