The United States needs a robust, resilient, reliable and competitive supply chain for solar energy and energy storage components in order to meet climate goals, reduce carbon pollution, create U.S. jobs, and build a modern energy system. Supporting the build-out of this supply chain is one of SEIA’s top priorities.
SEIA is building a resource for member companies to identify areas that are likely to qualify as Energy Communities (ECs) as defined in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). SEIA members can access an interactive version of this map, as well as additional details on the methodology and justification for including the areas shown.
There are roughly 100 Congressional Districts that rank in the top 50 for the four main indicators of a strong solar market: installed capacity, companies in operation, number of jobs, and number of installations. Below you can explore the top 50 Congressional Districts for each of these categories.
As of early 2013, there are more than 130 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy systems powering Navy, Army and Air Force bases in at least 31 states and the District of Columbia. See what states have the most solar installed on our interactive map.
