In 2007, the U.S. solar energy industry saw a glimpse of a gigawatt future. There was signi?cant growth in the commercial and residential PV markets and a new utility-scale segment for PV emerged with the fastest growth of all segments representing over 15 percent of the annual U.S. installed PV capacity. The ?rst concentrating solar power plant was built in more than 15 years with dozens more utility-scale projects in the pipeline. The expansion of the solar water heating market continued. Thousands of U.S. jobs were created and billions of dollars were invested. And, the industry strengthened its presence in Washington and our united coalition support across the country.

U.S. Solar Market InsightTM is a quarterly publication of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA)® and GTM Research.
The webinar covers the applicable OSHA fall protection regulations affecting low- and steep-slope roofing work and the applicable OSHA fall protection rules present for work on solar roof installations. Learn from a field expert on the essential components of a managed fall protection program and how this translates to trained and competent field personnel required to install solar-related systems and comply with the OSHA regulations.
According to the latest Solar Market Insight report from SEIA and GTM Research, solar PV installations increase 85% in in the first quarter of 2012 over the first quarter of 2011.
This webinar introduces NFPA 70E: Electrical Safety In The Workplace, presented by Keith Gershon. Participants gain the necessary knowledge to assess their workplace's electrical safety program and may immediately begin to implement the key requirements of the Standard.
Some states and utilities require installation of UEDS between PV power systems and the utility grid as a device to ensure line worker safety. However, eight states and many major utility companies have recognized that safety devices and features already part of all code-compliant PV systems make the UEDS redundant and have eliminated its requirement.
One of SEIA’s top priorities is to help ensure a sustainable solar supply chain globally. In support of this mission, SEIA is taking proactive steps to promote environmental and social responsibility within the industry.
According to a new survey conducted by Kelton Research on behalf of SCHOTT Solar and the Solar Energy Industries Association™ (SEIA™), if Americans were in charge of the country’s energy policy, solar once again tops the list of energy sources that they would choose to support.
