The Solar Electric Power Association's (SEPA) new briefing, Utility Solar Market Snapshot, is the most up-to-date look at where solar has been and where it's going. The most solar-active electric utilities reported to SEPA and we are delivering this actionable intelligence to you for free.

The U.S. in 2013 saw a record in solar photovoltaic and concentrated solar power installed in 2013. Annual solar surpassed four gigawatts (GW) last year, bringing U.S. solar capacity to 10.7 GW from just over 6 GW in 2012.  The rising trend in solar development is moving faster than many utilities expected, signaling to the power sector that companies need to plan and prepare today, even if solar is not currently overwhelming.

This briefing will help you to:

  • Visualize the growth of the utility-scale market and what is being planned through 2019
  • Dive into the key utility-solar business issues for the next 2-3 years
  • Consider how net metering is affecting the utility business model
  • Understand why the residential and utility-scale markets are growing while the commercial sector is lagging
  • Compare the market segment portfolios of the top five utilities for cumulative solar capacity with the “average utility”
