US Solar researchers : The Top Three Energy Source
In December of 2015, the solar industry received an unexpected gift from Congress: a budget was passed that included a 5-year extension of the solar and wind tax credits in exchange for a lifting of the 40-year-old crude oil export ban. The final numbers for 2015 show that the U.S. solar industry had installed a record 7260 Megawatts of solar in that year. Even more amazing is the fact that GTM Research predicts that there will be a record-breaking 16,000 Megawatts of solar installed in 2016. Because the solar tax credits were extended, the solar industry will now have the ability to grow with certainty over the next 5 years. For the past 3 years, solar has been in the top 3 for new sources of electricity along with wind and natural gas, and it appears that the trend will continue. Solar may even gain ground on wind power.
