Solar Panel installations set new record
« on: March 15, 2012, 03:09:18 AM »

An article in my newspaper today says that 2011 was the best year yet for new solar power installations. The installation of solar power panels more than doubled between 2010 and 2011.  A report jointly released on Wednesday by the Solar Energy Industries Association and GTM Research found that 1,855 MW were installed nationwide in 2011, an increase of 109% over the previous year. More than 61,000 individual solar projects were completed in 2011, including many large installations serving commercial or utility scale clients. There were 28 projects larger than 10 MW each. The record number of panel installations was fueled, in part, by a free-fall in solar panel prices, which dropped more than 50% in 2011.

Here are the top 10 states for photovoltaic solar installations during 2011:

California:  542 MW
New Jersey:  313 MW
Arizona:  273 MW
New Mexico:  115 MW
Colorado:  91 MW
Pennsylvania:   88 MW
New York:  60 MW
North Carolina:  55 MW
Texas: 47 MW
Nevada:  44 MW
