In October, I published reports on the top US solar states per capita, the top US solar states as a percentage of electricity, and the top US states in terms of total installed solar power capacity. Based on that first ranking system, I’m going a bit broader and looking at some more solar stats.
Below are the number of solar jobs, the number of solar installations, the number of homes the solar power in the state essentially powers (this is not a figure for actual number of homes with solar panels on the roofs), and percent of the state’s electricity coming from solar for the top 10 states in terms of solar power per capita. Also included are maps of where solar power companies are located in these 10 states, courtesy SEIA. Scroll down and enjoy the show.
In addition to those top 10 solar states (per capita), below are 7 states that were in the top 10 in this category in 2012 that are no longer in the top 10 in 2020. Have a look at their stats as well, and perhaps how they compare to the leaders above.
