Four solar projects were awarded the 2016 Photovoltaic Project of Distinction award at the Solar Power PV & Expo in Boston, Massachusetts, on Feb. 24.
It's official. Solar energy has made history. In 2015, America experienced the largest increase in solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity we've ever seen. Solar now provides 1 percent of all the electricity generated in the U.S.— up from 0.1 percent in 2010.
Leaders in the corporate, financial, healthcare, electronics and solar sectors converged to share how their companies are investing in, installing and developing solar and renewable energy projects at our Solar Goes Corporate event yesterday in New York City. The event was sold out and the live-stream garnered nearly 80,000 views.
Off-grid solar installations are gaining traction in remote areas across the developing and developed world.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is counting down to the kick off between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers, not just because we love the game, the multi-million dollar advertisements and the A-list halftime entertainment, but also because solar energy—our MVP—will be playing a starring role.
