Utilities across the United States are taking a leading role in the spread of community solar projects aimed at expanding access to clean power for customers who, for a variety of reasons, may not want or be able to install solar panels on their roofs.
Last year was another in a string of perpetually high-growth years for solar deployment. More than 4.2 gigawatts (GW) of new solar capacity was installed at more than 140,000 locations in the U.S., bringing total capacity to 10.5 GW at 450,000 sites (Figure 1).
