Report: U.S. solar PV pipeline to hit 17GW

Solarbuzz - Jul 6

The U.S. pipeline of non-residential solar PV projects planned to be built between 2011 and 2015 has grown to 17GW, according to research conducted by analysis firm Solarbuzz. The company has identified 601 major solar PV projects ranging in size from 50kW to 500MW that are set to be installed by 2015, almost two-thirds of which are located in California. First Solar, SunPower, and Suntech are the three module suppliers expected to benefit the most from the boom in utility-scale solar development. The Solarbuzz research indicates the increase in large-scale solar development is due to the DOE's loan guarantee program for renewable energy projects.
