Segment Analysis

United States Solar & Wind Industry Overview

The solar and wind power industry generates revenue from owning and operating solar and wind farms and selling the produced energy to downstream customers. Over the past five years, government assistance has made these energy sources more cost competitive with other electricity-generation sources, with net generation from solar and wind continuing to increase.

Solar Power

Electricity production from solar power has expanded broadly over the past five years. However, according to the latest estimates from the EIA, solar accounts for less than 0.4% of net electricity generated in the United States. Nevertheless, the industry’s rapid growth, spurred by government policy and augmented by strong public support, suggests that solar power generation will secure its place in the domestic energy sector.

Wind Power

The United States is home to more than 52,000 wind turbines installed across 40 states and Puerto Rico. Performance in the wind power industry continues to depend largely on government support for renewable energy at the federal and state levels. Federal tax credits can make the costs of wind power competitive with other energy-generation technologies, which translates to higher demand and revenue for the industry. Along similar lines, state governments can mandate that utilities diversify their generation sources, which leads to greater demand for wind power. Growth is projected through 2022.
