2013 Sunshine Year

 

Last year was a banner year for solar. Approximately 4,300 MW of PV came online, that’s 27% growth over 2012 installation totals. Q3 2013 was the second largest quarter in the PV history, installing 930 Megawatts. An estimated 800 MW of CSP was expected to be commissioned by the end of 2013. All together, the new solar electric capacity added in 2013 is expected to have generated enough clean energy to power over 850,000 average American homes. Powering the demand are the dropping prices. On average the price of a PV system installed has come down 16% to $3/W, with panel prices down by more than 60% since 2011.

Renewables accounted for about 37% of the new capacity installed in 2013, looking at utility-scale development. But note that rooftop solar on home and businesses is averaging over 100 MW of new capacity every month recently. Businesses mean business when it comes to solar. The top 25 companies installing solar have amassed 445 MW of solar PV capacity across the country, that’s up from about 300 MW last year according to SEIA. The leader last year was Walmart installing 89.43 MW. Costco, Kohl’s and Apple followed with 47, 06, 44.72, and 40.73 MW respectively.
