SEPA Releases Top Ten Solar Rankings Report for 2008
Report Illustrates Power Industry`s Adoption of Solar Electricity
Today, the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) issued a report demonstrating that the industry has made major strides amidst a tough economic climate. SEPA`s "2008 Top Ten Utility Solar Integration Rankings" report identifies the utilities in the U.S. that have the most significant amounts of solar electricity integrated into their portfolio, and records the increased collaboration of the U.S. electric utility and solar energy industries. The report shows that the utility segment is making a major investment to increase the amount of solar energy in power portfolios, with many utilities doubling the amount of solar power in their portfolio in just one year. The overall installed solar capacity of the top ten ranked utilities rose from 711 megawatts to 882 megawatts, reflecting 25 percent growth. Ninety-two utilities participated in this year`s survey, an increase of more than 80 percent over last year, showing that the utility industry`s interest in solar power is stronger than ever.
