And there are many reasons to “shout out” for solar. Over the past forty years technology gains and enormous reductions in price have moved solar from an R&D pipe dream to the energy source Americans want most emphasized.
2013 is projected (final numbers not yet published) to be a record year for solar electric capacity added in the U.S., with 4.3 gigawatts (GW) of solar PV brought online (27% growth over 2012 installations), and about 800 MW of concentrating solar power (CSP) commissioned. It’s anticipated that more solar was added to U.S. electricity capacity than any other renewable resource in 2013, and that for the first time in fifteen years the U.S. installed more solar capacity than the current world leader, Germany.
