U.S. Community Solar Outlook 2017

Report summary

The community solar segment is on the cusp of becoming a mainstream driver of U.S. solar market growth. Starting in 2017, community solar is expected to consistently drive 20% - 25% of the annual non-residential PV market and become a half-gigawatt annual market by 2019. But underneath its continued top-level growth is an increasingly complex legislative and regulatory landscape shaping where, when and why community solar achieves scale.


This new report explores the primary drivers, risks and markets shaping how community solar will achieve scale, both in the complex policy landscape for third party-led community solar and with the emergence of megawatt-scale utility-led programs. Developers, financiers, installers and suppliers should read this report to learn more about the nearly 3 GW of community solar in development across 29 states.
