Even though the president and his cabinet deny climate change and have given the cold shoulder to renewable energies, that doesn’t mean the rest of us have. In fact, solar power is booming in the U.S., and it looks like that trend won’t be stopping anytime soon.
During 2016, the annual U.S. solar photovoltaic (PV) system installations nearly doubled, according to the U.S. Solar Market Insight 2016 Year-in-Review report. Not only that, representing 39 percent of electricity generating capacity, solar power was the largest new source of energy in 2016, even surpassing natural gas and wind power.
“It would be hard to overstate how impressive 2016 was for the solar industry,” said Abigail Ross Hopper, the president and CEO of Solar Energy Industries Association® (SEIA).
