California Solar Power Hits New Output Record

California solar power plants recently hit a new electricity output record for electricity from utility-scale solar power plants. It hit 4.813 gigawatts of output on August 15 at 12:03pm. The data comes from CAISO, which only tracks utility-scale output. It can’t track behind-the-meter rooftop output, which had the potential to add another 2.6 gigawatts. To put

SolarCity Wants 1 Million Solar Customers By 2018

Originally published on Solar Love. SolarCity, already the #1 full-service solar provider in the US, has announced a target of 1 million solar customers by 2018, following a pretty huge, $120 million purchase of the direct sales company Paramount Solar. SolarCity is currently sitting at 68,000 solar customers, quite a ways off from its 2018 target.

Solar Power Growing Faster Than Usain Bolt Can Run

Originally published on Solar Love. There’s a solar panel installation boom going on. In the EU. In the US. In Asia. In South America. Globally. Solar panel installation volumes have skyrocketed due to falling solar power prices and decent solar power incentives from thoughtful governments. The latest research from GTM Research shows that ⅔ of the
