A fairly common refrain you’ll hear from myself and some industry peers is that “it’s an exciting time to work in energy” – because, well, it is. The energy landscape has been evolving at an incredible rate over the last several years, with solar leading the charge on many fronts. A few points to put that in perspective:
- In 2020, the US solar market installed a record 19.2 GW of solar capacity, a 43% increase over 2019
- Solar accounted for 43% of all new electricity generating capacity added in the US in 2020, representing Solar’s largest ever share of new generating capacity and ranking first among all technologies for the second year in a row.
- An expected 324GW of solar is expected to come online over the next decade, nearly quadrupling the current amount of solar capacity installed.
It seems we’ve just scratched the surface for solar adoption, and as the worlds second largest consumer of electricity – there is enormous opportunity for homes, businesses, and utilities to continue this trajectory towards a carbon free future.
The team at Glow is passionate about providing world class service for turnkey PV systems. We’ve spent years developing and implementing systems across the country, and we understand there are unique considerations for each business and facility.
