Full 2011 Utility Solar Rankings Report Now Available
The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) released the full 2011 Utility Solar Rankings Report. The full report ranks utilities nationally, by region and by utility type and is available at no cost. Among the many findings, the report showed that in 2011, utilities interconnected more than 62,000 PV systems of all sizes. These new systems resulted in almost 1,500 megawatts of new utility solar capacity, more than twice as much as was added in 2010, which itself had been a record year. Both the number of systems and the percentage of growth make solar electricity the fastest growing electric source in the U.S. in 2011.
