The American conservative news site The Federalist recently released a list of 50 states with the best renewable energy options in 2019.
The states included in the list include Hawaii, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia.
The list was released by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), a trade group for the solar industry.
“This is an important milestone in the solar energy transition.
Today marks a milestone for our industry and a win for the people of America,” said SEIA president Mike Schuh, adding that the solar market will continue to grow and continue to offer jobs and economic opportunities.
Solar energy is a growing and innovative industry, but it has yet to achieve the same kind of success as the coal, gas, and oil industries.
It’s still far from a match for the wind and solar power, which have become more expensive to produce and store.
While solar power has become more affordable, solar panel makers are still losing money on each watt of electricity produced, said Robert Giesbrecht, executive director of Solar Energy Industry Association (SETIA), which represents solar panels manufacturers.
Still, the solar panel market is projected to grow by over a million units this year, according to Giesbelts.
In fact, the market is predicted to surpass the 100 million-unit mark in 2021, according the SEIA.
According to a recent report by GTM Research, the global PV market is expected to grow from $1.1 trillion in 2020 to $5.9 trillion by 2021, with solar panels growing by 50 percent, according for 2017.
A report released last month by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) predicted that by 2021 solar power will generate a $3.8 trillion market in the United States alone.
On top of that, GTM found that more than 100 states are investing in the technology, with California alone contributing over $1 billion.
