The U.S. Solar market will increase by 13 GW per year over the next six years to reach 125 GW, according to The U.S. Solar Market Insight report by GTM Research. Increasing demand and falling prices will drive this growth, and utilities will remain the largest players. The report was commissioned by the Solar Energy Industries Association.
According to Bret J. Sowers, Chairman of the South Carolina Solar Business Alliance ” With prices falling and demand on the upswing, the solar industry both nationally and here in South Carolina has a tremendous opportunity for growth, increased employment, high tax revenues, and energy independence.”
