Solar Power Projected to Double for 7th Consecutive Year

Washington Examiner : “The amount of U.S. electricity generated from solar power is slated to more than double for the seventh consecutive year.”  

“The U.S. Energy Information Administration said that solar has provided 7.4 million megawatt-hours of electricity through June, enough to power about 685,000 homes per year. Aided by a mishmash of federal and state incentives, coupled with plummeting solar panel prices, installations are increasing all over the country — generation this year is more than double the 3.5 million megawatt-hours over the same period last year.”
