As we enter Q2 of 2017, it is time for us to consider our solar accomplishments over the past fifteen months. In the past year, the U.S. added approximately 85% more PV than in 2015. Solar, natural gas, and wind made up 24.3 Gigawatts (GW) of additional electricity generating facilities. This is over 93% of the total new electricity generating additions in 2016. Solar plus energy storage has even more potential than solar. The storage market can grow and adopt lessons learned based on the transformations of the solar market. While solar and energy storage become an integral part of the utility structure, see New York policy, an opportunity for energy storage presents itself now more than ever before.
