The U.S. solar industry added 6.5 gigawatts (GW) of new electric generating capacity in Q3 2023, a 35% year-over-year increase as federal clean energy policies begin to take hold. As a result of this growth, the United States is expected add a record 33 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity in 2023, according to the U.S. Solar Market Insight Q4 2023 report released today by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie.
Today the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) released a report that addresses the barriers to building a robust energy storage manufacturing sector in the United States.
For generations, America’s farmers have used the sun to provide for their communities and support the growth of the country. Today, with the help of solar and storage technologies, agricultural communities are delivering both the food that powers our bodies and the clean energy that powers our economy.
In many communities, hospitals, places of worship, and recreation centers play a vital role in bringing people together and helping in times of need. Now, community centers are turning to solar and storage to provide power and are exploring new solar savings and benefit-sharing models along the way.
America’s solar and storage industry is — by any metric — booming. While this growth has been quick, it has not been haphazard. This expansion is underpinned by the industry’s steadfast commitment to purposeful, proactive growth.
Today the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) is launching a new survey to track key demographic and workplace experience metrics in the U.S. solar and storage industry. The U.S. solar and storage workforce is expected to double in size over the next decade, and this survey will capture the information needed to help industry leaders make data-driven decisions as their teams grow.
