Solar Progress Report: Advancing Toward a Clean Energy Future   [open pdf - 534KB]

From the Document: "Solar energy is a vital component of the Administration's all-of the above energy strategy. Supported by historic investments in research, development, and deployment, the price of solar technologies has decreased and the U.S. solar market has experienced rapid growth since President Obama took office. Last year was a record-breaking year for new solar installations, and the amount of solar power installed in the United States has increased nearly eleven fold -- from 1.2 gigawatts in 2008 to an estimated 13 gigawatts today, which is enough to power more than 2.2 million American homes." This report provides a progress report on the implementation of solar programs and technology in the United States. The main accomplishments cited in the report are the steep decline in solar technology costs, deployment of solar on public lands and buildings, and the creation of solar jobs.
