Wow! This is going to look at markedly different next year as GroundWork and its clients bring on 1 GW of solar per month in 2016. Check out these maps from the Washington Post.
“There are 772 solar-powered electric plants in the U.S. They have generated 1 percent of the nation’s electricity this year.
Sun power is predominantly in the Southwest where the sun shines the most. Thirty-nine states have no solar generating plants. California gets 8 percent of its electricity from solar and Nevada gets 5 percent, followed by Vermont and Arizona with 4 percent each.”
