In 2022, the US solar market installed 20.2GWdc of capacity, a 16% decrease from 2021. The uncertainty surrounding the anticircumvention investigation and numerous solar equipment detentions by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) constrained industry growth.

Solar accounted for 50% of all new electricity-generating capacity added to the US grid in 2022. Solar was the leading technology for new additions for the fourth consecutive year.

California was once again the top-ranked solar market in 2022. – Texas briefly held the position in 2021. California’s annual residential solar installations have doubled to over 2GWdc since 2020. However, recent residential solar compensation changes will likely cut the market by nearly 40% by 2024.

Nationwide, the residential segment installed just shy of 6GWdc in 2022, growing by a staggering 40% over 2021. A record 700,000 homeowners installed solar in 2022.

The commercial solar segment installed 1.4GWdc, shrinking 6% compared to 2021. The community solar segment installed 1GWdc, 16% less than in 2021. Project delays from 2022 are expected to prop up installation volumes in 2023 in both segments.

The utility-scale segment was most heavily impacted by uncertainty from the anticircumvention investigation and solar module detainment caused by CBP’s Withhold Release Order (WRO) and enforcement of the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act (UFLPA). Installations came in at 11.8GWdc for the year, 31% below 2021 and the segment’s lowest total since 2019.

Wood Mackenzie has included 10-year outlooks for this year in the Review report for each market segment. The total installed US solar fleet is expected to grow five times larger than today, from 141GWdc at the end of 2022 to more than 700GWdc by 2033. This growth is mainly due to the long-term policy certainty created by the IRA.

Wood Mackenzie has included two alternative forecast scenarios in this report for the first time – a Bull case and a Bear case. These scenarios consider different outcomes related to supply chain dynamics, tax credit qualification, labor availability, and retail rate price trends. More details and data can be found in the full report.
