US Solar in 2010 A $6 Billion Industry

The U.S. solar market grew 67 percent from a $3.6 billion market in 2009 to $6 billion in 2010, according to “U.S. Solar Market Insight: 2010 Year in Review,” a report released this month by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and GTM Research.

California installed the most photovoltaics last year, with 258.9 megawatts of direct current, followed by New Jersey in second place with 137.1, and Nevada with 61.4.

The SEIA estimates that the U.S. now has a cumulative solar capacity of 2.6 gigawatts.
