Solar Energy

Did solar affect the 2020 fiscal year?

Solar energy has been the start of a saving grace for humanity. In many parts of the world, skies are clearer of pollution.  Helping photovoltaic power stations convert light into electricity through more productive and reliable installations.  In Britain, on April 20th, solar generation peaked at 9.7 gigawatts. It represents almost 30% of the country’s electricity supply, which is ten times the usual proportion. In Germany, the balance of solar in the mix reached 23% for a week in April, compared to about 8% during 2019.

Although solar production is increasing globally, there are mishaps because of COVID-19. In the third quarter of 2020, the solar industry continued to recover from the coronavirus pandemic’s worst business impacts. U.S. solar companies installed 3.8GWdc (gigawatts-direct current) of solar PV capacity, a 9% increase quarter-over-quarter and a 46% increase year-over-year.



Just under 70% of capacity installed in Q3 came from the utility segment, with 2.7 GW installed. The residential market bore the brunt of the pandemic impacts to the solar industry in Q2 but experienced a relatively quick recovery with 738 MW installed in Q3, a 14% increase from the previous quarter.



The non-residential non-utility PV segment, including commercial, government, nonprofit, and community solar, increased 8% from last quarter with 429 MW, in line with volumes for the first quarter of the year. Despite setbacks from the pandemic, a record 11 GW of new solar capacity was installed in 2020 through Q3, already positioning 2020 as the third-largest year ever. Additionally, solar PV accounted for 43% of all new electricity-generating capacity additions through Q3 2020. The highest of any generation technology

The states that saw the most dramatic declines have also seen the largest recoveries. California, the largest residential solar market, shrank 23% in the second quarter and grew 15% in the third quarter. New York, which had the strictest lockdowns, shrank 73% in the second quarter and rebounded with 156% growth in the third quarter. Markets like Arizona and Texas that put much less restrictive lockdown measures in place decreased slightly in the second quarter, but each surpassed their first-quarter volumes in the third quarter.
