EIA generation data for March 2022 was released recently

Trailing 12M solar generation through March increased 26% year-over-year, outpacing any other fuel source

Solar is only 4% of the US generation stack, but growing fast, led by Texas and California

We look at total solar generation and the breakdown by utility scale and behind-the-meter

California continues to dominate U.S. solar generation, producing as much as the next four states combined

California and Texas comprise 45% of U.S. total solar generation

Texas added the most solar generation over the last 12 months, increasing by 64%

Texas, California and Florida added over 50% of the U.S. solar generation increase

Texas leads by more in 12-month change when looking at utility-scale solar generation only, adding as much as the next two states combined

California dominates behind-the-meter solar generation increases, adding more than the next five states combined.  Net metering legislation is a current hot topic and may change the growth trajectory for residential solar.
