During 2011, some industry reduced the cost of solar panels up to 50 percent which helped a lot to increase the solar business rapidly in US . The U.S. installed 506 megawatts of photovoltaic panels in the first quarter last year. Now, the nation is focusing to install a total of 3,300 megawatts of solar panels by the end of this year. If the nation become successful to install 3,300 megawatts of solar panel, the U.S.’s share of the global photovoltaic market will jump from 7% last year to 11% in 2012.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has approved a preliminary tariffs on those solar cells. Final decision will come later this year. Regarding this matter, major Chinese solar cell makers are planning to circumvent the tariffs by using cells made in factories that are placed out of China in order to have the dominance in US.

On Tuesday Abengoa Solar said it would build a 200-megawatt photovoltaic power plant in California’s Imperial County. On Wednesday Silicon Valley installer SolarCity announced that U.S. Bancorp would finance $250 million in residential and commercial photovoltaic installations.

The domestic solar markets are booming more than ever. Globally, the US is now in 4th position in solar production at 2GW.

    Great post, solar energy would grow even faster only if prices of developing such energy would drop.
    But as we can see it’s still growing fast, and one day it’ll be cheap and used in every home and company.
    thanks for sharing

    The US gets 50% of electrical power from
    coal plants. This is an immense carbon footprint thanks to the US energy-consuming habits. Solar energy has no carbon
    footprint and it is a viable energy option.
