While installers in Florida added the most distributed solar last year, South Carolina leads on a per-capita basis, and Georgia, North Carolina and Louisiana round out the leaderboard. Snapshot stories included.
Solar installation crews in the Southeast put up 242 MW of small-scale (under 1 MW) solar PV systems in the year to October 2018.
Florida added 85 MW, edging out South Carolina at 78 MW. But South Carolina leads on a population-weighted basis, having widened its lead over Louisiana in second place.
This year, 3.9 GW of distributed generation is projected to come online nationwide—nearly as much as utility-scale generation—according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
