26 Jan Solar Industry Growth
Every year, the solar industry is expanding. Prior to advanced technology, the price of solar cell construction was extremely expensive to make. However, as technology advances, the price of creating solar cells decreases. The result of this is having more of this technology available to any class. At Vision Solar, we are planning for a brighter, cleaner future with our solar technology. Solar Energy within the next five years is going to prove to be one of the best advancements of the century.
The Growing United States Solar Industry:
In 2020, the solar industry employed more than 242,000 people while generating tens of billions of dollars in economic value. At the beginning of 2020, the United States had installed more than 2 million PV systems, which powered only about 1.5% of the United States energy production. PV installers are projected to be one of the fastest-growing jobs between 2018 and 2028. Along with this, states are continuing to push for more solar power. For example, California created the Solar Mandate making it necessary for all new construction to have PV solar systems. Other states are continuing to follow this idea as new ways to incorporate cleaner energy into their communities.
Leading States in Solar Power:
As of 2020, the top leading state in solar energy is California. The top five states combined are projected to contribute to more than half of the total solar energy produced within the United States. These top five states (in order) include: California, North Carolina Texas, Florida, and Nevada. These five states are working to install more and more PV systems in order to provide clean, renewable energy for their residents.
Why So Many People Are Switching to Solar
As the solar industry expands, your savings do too. Homeowners are saving upwards of 20% on their monthly electric bills. On top of this, their solar panels are capable of paying for themselves with the process of net metering. Net metering allows for the excess energy that is generated to be stored and used for later. Any excess energy that is not used at all will be used as a credit on your monthly bill. Saving all of this money is just the beginning.
Spread the word and you may just be a part of this positive change we all need.
