Record Year for U.S. Solar

Greentechmedia : “Photovoltaic installations continued to proliferate, increasing 41 percent over 2012 to reach 4,751 megawatts. In addition, 410 megawatts of concentrating solar power came on-line.”  

“Solar was the second-largest source of new electricity generating capacity in the U.S., exceeded only by natural gas. Additionally, the cost to install solar fell throughout the year, ending the year 15 percent below the mark set at the end of 2012.”  

   

“California continues to lead the U.S. market, accounting for more than half of all U.S. solar installed in 2013.”
