The United States solar market just shattered all previous quarterly solar photovoltaic (PV) installation records. According to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association's (SEIA) Q4 2016 U.S. Solar Market Insight report, 4,143 megawatts (MW) of solar PV were installed in the U.S. in the third quarter of the year, a rate of one MW every 32 minutes. That pace is even faster today, as the fourth quarter will surpass this past quarter's historic total.

Solar panel prices continue to drop this week as suppliers suffer from falling demand in EU and escalated price competition spooked by serious oversupply and unclear political environment. With the demand for PV installations in EU and the US beginning to wane on the advent of holiday season, solar panel prices in these regions continue to descent since only limited transactions are made during the holiday season. In addition, in the US market, competition among module makers remains strong so as to make the further pressures on solar panel prices. In India, the increasing demand could not sustain the prices as major players continue to offer slashed prices in the market in attempts to secure more orders. In China, the price is relatively stable due to solid demand in domestic market, but is dragged down in the dollar term with RMB deprecation. Consequently, exacerbating the problem is oversupply nature, which leaves competition remains fierce in major markets, as module players engage in unprecedented price reduction to secure orders.
