As the world’s electricity demand grows, it’s imperative that we cut polluting emissions. Solar electricity is meeting an increasingly-significant percentage of global energy demand. Smart, consistent long-term solar policies, such as the investment tax credit (ITC) and renewable portfolio standards, and industry innovations in technology and financing, have made solar a bright spot in our economy. The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) forecasts that 5.2 gigawatts of new solar electric capacity will come online in 2013. Our industry stands ready to accelerate solar deployment, producing many gigawatts of clean, emissions-free electricity.
