Solar energy is on the rise in the United States. At the end of the first quarter of 2015, more than 21,300 megawatts of cumulative solar electric capacity had been installed around the country, enough to power more than 4.3 million homes. The rapid growth of solar energy in the United States is the result of forward-looking policies that are helping the nation reduce its contribution to global warming and expand its use of local renewable energy sources.
With more than 8,000 companies now operating nationwide, solar energy has become one of the fastest-growing industries in America – thanks, in large part, to remarkable growth on both the West and East coasts.
