U.S. Community Solar Outlook 2017

by Cory Honeyman

The community solar segment is on the cusp of becoming a mainstream driver of U.S. solar market growth. Starting in 2017, community solar is expected to consistently drive 20% - 25% of the annual non-residential PV market and become a half-gigawatt annual market by 2019. But underneath its continued top-level growth is an increasingly complex legislative and regulatory landscape shaping where, when and why community solar achieves scale.
