Solar a third of new US power capacity

Solar is now a big player in the US power generation market, making up nearly a third of new generating capacity in 2013. But Australia's solar installation productivity is still vastly better.

The figures are now in for US solar installations from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association – megawatts installed are up 41% on the prior year to 4751 megawatts with nearly half of it coming in the last 3 months of the year.

Our charts of the week are taken from the GTM’s 2013 Year in Review illustrating solar’s spectacular growth in the US.
