Abstract

In the recent years, because of the growing economy and increasing population, the demand for electricity has increased substantially. Renewable technology as a green (sustainable) solution of this dramatic increase has therefore attracted more attentions.

Through the process of designing and installing a commercial solar power system, several market barriers have been discovered, which include:

State government barriers;
Local government barriers;
Western Power (network distributor) barriers;
Energy retailer barriers;
Customer barriers.

This dissertation included the experience of installing a commercial solar PV system, and discusses the barriers identified. To overcome those barriers, more efforts would need to be made at all levels.
