U.S. Solar Market on Track for a Record-Breaking Year

In the first quarter of 2016, 1,665MW of solar PV were installed in the United States with the solar industry adding more new capacity during this period than coal, natural gas and nuclear combined, according to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association’s (SEIA). This growth builds off the momentum of a record 2015, in which solar exceeded natural gas capacity additions on an annual basis for the first time ever. The report also says that this year the solar industry will install an unprecedented 14.5GW of capacity, a 94% jump over the 7.5GW in capacity installed in 2015. This growth cements solar energy’s role as a mainstay in America’s portfolio of electricity sources. http://ecmweb.com/green-building/us-solar-market-track-record-breaking-year
