The Solar+ Decade

Much of the growth in solar has been fueled by a more than 70% drop in costs to install solar over the past decade. The drop in costs combined with the demand for clean energy, lower utility bills, and concerns about the energy grid have made solar into an even more attractive option for homeowners.

The Solar+ Decade

What's been going on to set us up for The Solar+ Decade:

  • In 2010, there was one solar project installation every 10 minutes in the United States.
  • In 2020, a new solar project was installed every 75 minutes in the United States.
  • By 2024, it is expected to be an average of 1 new solar project installed every minute in the United States.

When you put the number of solar installations in the United States into this context, it is no surprise to hear that the number of solar installations is expected to quadruple between now and the end of 2030. It’s easy to understand why the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) says the 2020s is The Solar+ Decade.

At the start of the decade, SEIA projected that solar energy would comprise 20% of total electricity generation in the United States by the end of 2030.

Less than two years later, SEIA updated its estimates and now projects that solar will be 30% of total electricity generated in the United States!

For the first two years of this decade, solar installations achieved record breaking growth in 2020 and shattered annual growth records again in 2021.
