The rapid growth of solar installations continues.
Here are some of the key findings from a new Solar Energy Industries Association report about the first quarter of 2017:
- The U.S. market added 2,044 megawatts of solar PV (photovoltaics).
- Solar was the second-largest source of new electric energy.
- California remains a solar energy powerhouse for residential PV.
- Pricing for solar continues to drop across all markets.
- Forecasts show that installed solar PV is expected to triple over the next five years.
In addition, this is the sixth straight quarter in which more than two gigawatts of solar photovoltaics were installed.

Secondly, our customers are motivated by the savings they enjoy each month on their utility bills. Thirdly, the price of solar installations is as affordable as ever.
