Solar Energy

Solar history for 2020 forward relies on each companies’ actions

Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it.-Anonymous

Many major U.S. corporations, including Amazon, Apple, Walmart, and Target, are investing in solar and renewable energy at an incredible rate. What do they see that drives their investment into solar and recently solar+storage? The top corporate solar users in America have installed more than 7,000 MW of capacity across more than 35,000 different facilities across the country. They are considering the climate and the perception of the public as well as the value proposition, which has them gaining significant financial returns over the next 20 years.

After a 2% market decline in 2018 due to module tariff impacts on utility-scale project development timelines, growth resumed in 2019 with more than 13 GW installed. While coronavirus could lead to a 31% decline in 2020 from 2019 in distributed markets, most utility-scale work has been able to continue. A record pipeline in the utility segment will carry the industry to a record year for deployment in 2020. As we move forward, growth will be contingent on economies reopening, recovery of consumer and business demand, financial market stability, and a continuation of an increase in electricity demand.
There is no question that advances in solar PV technology are critical. Combining information from scientists and CEP Solar our inspection scorecard partner, their outlook states the planet is on track to warm by more than 2°C by 2050. This will have devastating consequences around the world. The rapid expansion of renewable energy capacity is critical in the fight against climate change, and higher efficiency, yet lower-cost PV solar brings us closer to that goal.

If you have two months before requiring modules please let us know and we will remove all risk by auditing your order from BOM through delivery

If you are a salesperson and you are looking for a new opportunity, please contact Robert or Karlita, and we would like to discuss your interest in sales.

Where does this leave the global solar industry? The pressure is on every player along the PV value chain to meet our energy transition needs while delivering profitable investment opportunities. At USD, we are tracking data that matters for building a lucrative industry. Each day we search better deals for the purchasing of equipment for our customers and partners. Bringing value to the industry by making sure equipment waiting for installation in a project is done at the best pricing possible.

Aerial infrared scans identify defects in PV modules that cannot be seen by visual inspection. Analysis of this data reveals that global top tier status lists do not always correlate with PV module reliability. Field reliability per manufacturer has completed for 37 GWs of aerial-infrared scanned over 3,500 PV operating systems globally. Analysis of this data reveals that global top tier status lists (Bloomberg) do not always correlate with PV module reliability. If you have questions about the modules you are purchasing, then we suggest contacting us and allowing us to help us to ensure you are getting what you plan for your project.
