One-third of all new electric generating capacity in the U.S in 2020 will supply from solar

In 2020, the United States plans to add 42 GW new electric generating capacity in its energy sector. Solar energy share is close to one-third, or exactly 13.48 GW. it is another high record that surpassed the previous record, 8 GW in 2016. it is placed in the second rank after wind power. The interesting point is that the combined share of wind and solar accounted for 76% of all new adding capacity. 

It also noted that utility-scale projects have got a prominent role in the solar’s share. More than half of utility-scale capacity will be commissioned in the four states of Texas, California, Florida, and South Carolina, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) latest report. The EIA expects another 5.1 GW of small-scale PV to come online by the end of 2020.
