Market share of solar installers in the United States – additional information

The solar power industry in the United States has steadily increased its revenue over the past years. By 2017, revenue in the solar power industry is projected to reach more than 210 million U.S. dollars. The residential solar market alone in 2015 saw an exponential growth over the years, with an additional solar PV capacity of nearly 2,100 megawatts installed. Leading U.S residential solar installers that year, in terms of market share, were SolarCity, Vivint Solar and Sunrun.

Outside the residential sector, traditional electric utilities across the country have also begun to install solar modules, following the global trend of renewable energy expansion. SolarCity was also ranked first among non-residential solar installers in the United States in 2015, accounting for 14 percent of total market share, followed by SunPower at 7 percent and Borrego Solar Systems at 5 percent of the national market share. Main commercial customers of these companies, including Walmart, Prologis, Target and Apple, installed solar power modules that would mainly function autonomously from the grid or in order to receive feed-in tariffs. Combining the residential and non-residential sector, solar power net generation in the United States amounted to over 26,000 million kilowatt hours in 2015.
