The Growing Solar Industry in the United States:
In 2020, the solar industry employed more than 242,000 people while generating tens of billions of dollars in economic value. In the beginning of 2020, the United States had installed more than 2 million PV systems, which powered only about 1.5% of the United States energy production. PV installers are projected to be one of the fastest growing jobs between 2018 and 2028. Along with this, states are continuing to push for more solar power. For example, California created the Solar Mandate making it necessary for all new construction to have PV solar systems. Other states are following this trend in hopes of finding a new, cleaner way to power their homes.
Our Leading States in Solar Power:
As of 2020, the top leading state in solar energy is California. The top five states combined are projected to contribute to more than half of the total solar energy produced within the United States. These top five states (in order) include: California, North Carolina Texas, Florida, and Nevada. These five states are working to install more and more PV systems in order to provide clean, renewable energy for their residents. The advancements in technology are allowing for cheaper, greener power production.
The Future of Worldwide Solar:
