Released September 18, 2014. The impressive and precipitous rise of the U.S. solar industry is well documented. As of the writing of this report, total installed solar electric capacity neared 16 gigawatts (GW), providing enough solar electricity to power over 3.2 million average U.S. households. By the end of 2014, this figure is expected to surpass 20 GW- more than four times the total amount of solar capacity that existed in the U.S. just three years ago. Of the more than 500,000 homes, businesses and public entities that have now installed a solar energy system, over 3,700 of those systems are located on public and private K-12 schools in the U.S.

With a projected growth rate of 300% in the US over the next four years, distributed solar presents a number of challenges to the current distribution grid. This report from GTM Research details the new power electronics equipment used to address these challenges and provides descriptions of key markets, financing activity in the sector and state level market forecasting.
The report offers a detailed, point-by-by point case as to why states should take advantage of clean solar energy as part of their efforts to comply with §111(d) of the Clean Air Act.
Do you represent a K-12 school that has gone solar? The Solar Foundation (TSF) wants to hear from you! With support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Solar Outreach Partnership and the Solar Energy Industries Association, TSF’s National Solar Schools Census effort seeks to build the most comprehensive database yet of K-12 solar schools, understand the challenges schools face in going solar, and learn how solar has been used as a teaching tool in these schools.
The Climate Group and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) announce their partnership to create a campaign through Facebook to accelerate the rate of US residential solar adoption. The main component of the campaign is a web app where solar owners can access a badge to display their solar ownership on Facebook. In return, they permit us to us to include their Facebook profile in our solar owner database to share with people interested in solar power.
