Giving #thanks this holiday season to all the people who have helped us grow the #solar industry. This year, solar is expected to offset an estimated 20 million metric tons of harmful CO2 emissions, which is the equivalent of taking 4 million cars off U.S. highways, saving 2.1 billion gallons of gasoline or shuttering half a dozen coal-fired power plants -- and we're just scratching the surface of our capabilities. Thank you.

SEIA's 3rd annual Solar Means Business report is released today, ranking the top corporate users of solar. Combined, these blue chip companies have deployed 569 MW of solar capacity at 1,100 locations—a 28 percent increase over a year ago and a 103 percent increase since 2012, when the first report was released. http://www.seia.org/research-resources/solar-means-business-report

IBM research and Airlight Energy unveiled a prototype last week of a #solar "sunflower" that can concentrate the sun’s radiation 2,000 times and generate 12 kilowatts of electrical power and 20 kilowatts of heat on a sunny day—enough to power several average homes. They hope to bring it to the market in 2017 at half to one-third of the cost of comparable solar converters today. http://seia.us/1ua9usa

The Big Apple could save $209 million by installing #solar on K-12 schools in the city, according to a newly-released nationwide study. New York State’s growing solar energy industry, which includes 425 companies and 5,000 employees statewide, has installed solar systems on 160 schools, generating 7,316 kilowatts (kW) of clean, reliable and affordable electricity and ranking the state's schools in the Top 10 nationally in installed capacity.
