Showing big gains in all solar sectors, Massachusetts had the fourth most new solar capacity added last year in the nation, according to the recently-released U.S. Solar Market Insight 2014 Year in Review, but finished No. 1 for the first time among Northeast states. "To put the state's remarkable progress in some context, the 751 MW of solar installed today in Massachusetts is more than our entire country had installed by 2007, that's an amazing achievement," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
Showing growth in all solar sectors, New Jersey had the sixth most new solar capacity added last year in the nation, according to the recently-released U.S. Solar Market Insight 2014 Year in Review report from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). The state also maintained its Top 3 ranking in total installed capacity, finishing the year behind only California and Arizona.

Christopher Martin for Bloomberg: A Texas city just north of Austin plans to begin weaning its residents from fossil fuels. The municipal utility in Georgetown, with about 50,000 residents, will get all of its power from renewable resources when SunEdison Inc. completes 150 megawatts of solar farms in West Texas next year. The change was announced Wednesday. It will be the first city to completely embrace clean power in the state, which is the biggest U.S. producer and user of natural gas. More will follow as municipalities seek to insulate themselves from unpredictable prices for fossil fuels, said Paul Gaynor, SunEdison’s executive vice president of North America. Burlington, Vermont, made a similar move with its purchase of a hydroelectric plant last year. “This will be the first of many,” Gaynor said in a telephone interview. “The city is making a judgment that they want to enjoy a stable electricity price.”
With the slow demand but the excess supply from the inventory adjustment and high production, poly-silicon prices show a significant price downtrend. The upcoming quarter financial results force poly-silicon suppliers to adjust their inventory to the reasonable levels.
Innovative Solar Systems, LLC has already sold approximately 300MW's of "Shovel Ready" Solar Farm projects in 2015 and is on track to sell another 250MW's over the next several months.
Proving that effective, forward-looking public policies can provide a big boost to a state's economy, North Carolina had the second most new solar capacity added last year in the United States, according to the recently-released U.S. Solar Market Insight 2014 Year in Review, and now stands poised to become the first state in the South to have 1 gigawatt (GW) of installed solar. "North Carolina is a case study of how solar works as well on the East Coast as it does on the West Coast – with the Tar Heel State now having more installed solar capacity than Oregon and Washington combined," said Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
