Leading Australian solar equipment distributor AC Solar Warehouse is bracing for a fresh surge in sales as Victoria emerges from lockdown, replicating a “COVID premium” in demand for residential solar installations that has seen its sales grow by 30 per cent over last year’s record high.
The Queensland-based company, recently recognised as Enphase Distributor of the Year for 2019-20, reports its sales have hit “historic levels” since emerging from the COVID-19 lockdown in April.
AC Solar Warehouse managing director and co-founder Grant Behrendorff said business “has been hectic from May onwards”. “Our greatest challenge is making sure we keep up with demand,” he said.
“The residential market is the strongest it has ever been. Residential sales inquiries are consistently high, with each month setting a new sales record as COVID-19 has increased demand for household systems. Although it hasn’t leapt ahead in the way that the residential sector has, the commercial market also remains strong.
“We have significant stock levels of all products throughout our network, so we’re prepared for Victoria reopening over the next month or two, which will see the release of a lot of pent-up demand. We have deliberately built up stock levels to prepare for that demand.”
