Top Of The World: America Slated First In Solar Power

According to a recently released solar market overview from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association, America is on target to become the top-ranked world leader in domestic solar panel installations by the end of this year. The report predicts that “2013 will likely be the first time in more than fifteen years that theU.S. installs more solar capacity than Germany.”

Why America is Embracing Solar

In total, the United States installed 930 megawatts of photovoltaics in the third quarter (Q3) of 2013, a 35 percent increase over last year’s Q3 results. Specifically, our nation’s leap to the top of world rankings was driven by an unprecedented, strong quarterly performance in residential photovoltaic installations—Americans added more solar panels to their homes than at any other time in history, making Q3 the largest quarter ever recorded.

The Q3 report also notes that Arizona is #2 in the nation for total number of solar installations, a finding consistent with prior reports and our own experiences as a leading local provider of photovoltaic solar integration services.
