Sizing Up the U.S. Commercial Solar Market
The commercial solar market varies widely in terms of both project sizes and customer offtaker types. But in the last six years, the market has been trending toward large projects (>1,000 kW) with more public customer offtakers.
This report covers projects that GTM Research classifies as “non-residential.” Rather than using a capacity cutoff to differentiate between non-residential and utility systems, GTM Research defines a system according to its contracted power offtaker. The data reflected in this brief comes from dozens of project-level datasets from utilities and state solar incentive programs in the U.S.
