California led all states in solar installation in 2018

California continues to lead the way in solar installations. That’s according to a new report by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.

The report, which was released last week, shows that the U.S. installed 10.6 GW in 2018. California led all states with more than 3.3 GW, ahead of Texas and North Carolina.

The report indicates that right now, there is enough solar active in the U.S. to provide energy for over 12 million houses. Further, U.S. capacity is expected to increase by 14 percent this year, and annual installations are predicted to hit 15.8 GW by 2021.

It is no surprise that California came out on top in 2018. The state takes solar seriously, which is demonstrated by the fact that the California Solar Rights Act was passed in 1978, and the Legislature is currently reviewing a Solar Bill of Rights.
