The top 10 utilities for solar energy
The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) named the top 10 U.S. electric utilities that added the most new solar power to their systems and the most solar on a watts-per-customer basis in 2012. The annual report identifies leading solar industry trends such as total installed capacity, market share and industry growth rates.
Utilities ranking in this year’s Top 10 by Solar Megawatt accounted for 73 percent of all capacity integrated in 2012, an increase from 2011.
The SEPA Top 10 Solar Watts-Per-Customer rankings take into account the number of customers each utility serves relative to their solar megawatts installed, giving small utilities a more competitive opportunity to measure solar energy capacity.
