WASHINGTON, D.C. and HOUSTON, TX — The U.S. added 4.6 gigawatts (GW) of new solar capacity in Q3 2022, a 17% decrease from the same quarter last year as trade barriers and ongoing supply chain constraints continue to slow America’s clean energy progress.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Led by tech and retail giants, American companies are installing record-levels of solar to power their operations and now account for 14% of all installed solar capacity in the United States, according to the Solar Means Business 2022 report released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). The report, which tracks and analyzes commercial solar adoption, named Meta, Amazon, Apple, Walmart and Microsoft as the top five corporate solar users in America.

WASHINGTON, D.C. and HOUSTON, TX — The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will help the U.S. solar market grow 40% over baseline projections through 2027, equal to 62 gigawatts (GW) of additional solar capacity, according to new forecasts in the U.S. Solar Market Insight Q3 2022 report released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie, a Verisk business.
If the United States wants to achieve its energy security and climate goals while creating well-paying jobs in the clean energy economy, building a robust solar and storage manufacturing base here in America is non-negotiable.
SEIA’s Solar Means Business Report tracks commercial solar installations, detailing how major corporations are using solar energy in the United States. Please complete this survey on your company's solar activities to help SEIA produce its 2022 edition of the report and to earn recognition for your company's investment in clean energy. If your company has or expects to have solar energy systems serving any of its facilities in the United States, your company should complete this survey.
Earlier this year the U.S. Energy Information Administration issued a proposal to update the Electric Power and Renewable Electricity Surveys, forms used to collect information on utility-scale, distributed solar projects, and utility operations. These forms, including form EIA 861, are a critical part of the solar industry’s data collection efforts, and any changes could impact the industry’s ability to effectively catalogue solar installation data.
