The United States installed 3.6 GW of new solar capacity in the first quarter (Q1) of 2020, according to the latest report published by the Solar energy Industries Association (SEIA) and Wood Mackenzie. This is the largest Q1 number in terms of installations for the country, demonstrating a 42% increase year-over-year (YoY).
As per the report, the COVID-19 pandemic is having a big impact on the U.S. solar industry. Constructions have been delayed, and the customer demand has also dropped because of the pandemic.
For Q1 2020, China led the way with total installations of 4 GW, followed closely by the United States with 3.6 GW of installations. India added a total of only 1.1 GW of new installations in this period. The big three in the solar arena collectively added ~8.7 GW of solar capacity in Q1 2020.Source : https://mercomindia.com/china-united-states-india-added/
