According to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, an extension of the solar investment tax credit would result in an additional 82 gigawatts (GW) of solar deployment over the next ten years, which would drive $87 billion in economic investment and create 113,000 U.S. solar jobs.
SEIA's Solar Means Business Report tracks solar adoption from America's corporations and businesses. SEIA members at the Watt level and above have access to the full dataset behind this report, containing project level data for more than 35,000 individual commercial solar systems.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and The Solar Foundation (TSF) are committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive workforce in the solar industry.
Each year, The Solar Foundation releases its National Solar Jobs Census, a report that tracks employment in the U.S. solar industry. It is the most comprehensive analysis of the solar labor market in the United States, and is a critical resource in educating policymakers and the general public about the economic impact of solar energy.
The SEIA team prepared this Annual Report as a means of communicating the association’s successes in 2018 and our priorities and deliverables in 2019. We believe the efforts outlined in this report will help us compete against the intensifying efforts of much better-funded opponents who are trying to put a halt to solar growth.
