Growing 43 percent year over year, the U.S. saw 2,051 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaic (PV) installed in the second quarter of 2016. According to GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Associations (SEIA) latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report, this marks the eleventh consecutive quarter in which more than a gigawatt (GW) of PV was installed.
A look at how wildfire air pollution can affect the power output of solar panels.
The slump of polysilicon price has initiated since late August as buyers buying power has been significantly hampered due to slashed downstream demand and prices that they could not bear with high-priced raw materials and threaten to cut more polysilicon procurements. A previous attempt to sustain polysilicon prices in China has failed and the polysilicon suppliers in China have lowered price drastically in order to lessen its piled-up inventories as well as to secure limited orders. Moreover, as the quarterly financial accounting process closes at the end of September, polysilicon suppliers are having compounded pressures to dump excess stockpiles, pushing down polysilicon prices further.

Polysilicon prices start to collapse obviously this week, particularly the price in China with more than 4% drops. The scope of polysilicon price correction was not enough, in contrast to the downstream components in August, leaving the stockpiles continues to pile up over the period as the trading were less active. However, as entering into a quarterly financial end in September, the increasing inventory pressure compound by sluggish downstream demand and slashed wafer prices eventually compromise Chinese polysilicon suppliers on adjusting prices quotes down dramatically. On the other hand, polysilicon prices out of China also extend the slump this week, but the price corrections are less noticeable than in China since the price baseline is much lower than that in China. As the result, without seeing any sign of global demand recovery that could possibly alleviate serious global supply glut soon, polysilicon supplier are forced to provide more price discounts in order to lessen the stock levels .
