S Distributed Solar Map – End 2018 Update.
The above map illustrates the U.S. solar market size state-wize at the end of 2018. According to Clean Technica, renewable energy continued to expand across U.S. in 2018. This expansion in renewable energy complements a growing number of states, utilities, and cities that have set ambitious goals to go 100% renewable.
New solar photovoltaic capacity, including from small-scale distributed solar systems (such as arrays on the rooftop of a home or business), shared community solar gardens, as well as larger utility-scale systems, has played a significant role in the overall transition to clean energy. Currently a growing number of states are making investments in solar a “priority”. The above map illustrates the size of each state’s solar market at the end of 2018 with pie charts that show the corresponding share of smaller distributed solar systems (1 megawatt and smaller). In 2018 map, Electricity Power Monthly have added a snapshot of data from Minnesota’s leading community solar garden program to flag this program’s success and illustrate an alternative model to larger-scale solar projects that does not defer entirely to incumbent utility ownership. ——————–***——————–
