U.S. public utility-level photovoltaic power generation accounted for one-third of new power generat

According to the latest report of the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) "Energy Infrastructure Update", in the first half of 2014, a total of 102 US utility-grade photovoltaic power plants and spotlight-fire (CSP) power stations were put into operation, with a total installed capacity of 1.13 GW. watt.

  The report pointed out that although the photovoltaic power generation in the first half of the year fell by 5%, it still accounted for 32% of the new power generation. In June, 11 public-scale photovoltaic power plants with a total capacity of 40 megawatts were put into production. Among them, FirstWind's 14 MW Warren photovoltaic power station in Massachusetts was the largest solar project of the month.

    The “net metered” residential and commercial solar system is not included in the FERC monthly report. If we cover the PV system's power generation in the above two areas, the US PV power generation in the first half of the year is expected to be close to half of the new power generation.
According to reports, natural gas is still the main force in the United States to increase power generation. In the first half of the year, natural gas production capacity was as high as 1.55 GW, accounting for 44% of the recorded capacity. The US Department of Energy expects this trend to continue into 2040. Although the agency expects photovoltaic power generation to remain the second largest source of electricity in the United States, ITC will expire at the end of 2016, when the US solar industry is likely to gradually fade. FERC expects that the annual installed capacity of photovoltaics in the United States will be only 1.5 GW in the next 25 years.
