This infographic ranks the Top 10 Solar States based on solar capacity installed in 2013. It also includes the number of megawatts installed per state, number of houses powered per megawatt of solar added, and fun factoids for each state. We also show the rankings "remixed" based on number of solar jobs added in 2013, cumulative solar capacity, price decline, and percentage of new electricity generation from solar.
