Utilities Are Embracing Solar Energy

A recent report from the U.S. Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) highlights the new utility interest in solar power.

Every year, SEPA ranks utilities across the nation in terms of how much solar energy they have incorporated into their user base.

“Together, the top 10 account for 73 percent of all of the solar capacity that was installed in 2012.” New utilities on the list are from states such as North Carolina, Tennessee, and Ohio.

Rounding out the top utilities list includes the Arizona Public Service (123), NV Energy (102 MW), Jersey Central Power & Light (98 MW), and Tucson Electric Power Co (73 MW).

The full report will be released next month.
