IREC’s Larry Sherwood was quoted in today’s (January 19, 2010) New York Times when asked about the amount of megawattts of solar that will be built in the U.S. in 2010.
In the article, Sherwood was quoted as saying that some 500 to 600 megawatts of solar power will be built this year across the United States — about double the figure of last year. But according to Sherwood, that number should be more like 700-900 MW for 2010.
Among states, California is expected to maintain first place, and New Jersey is likely to come in second, with Florida making a strong showing for the first time. “There will be quite a wider number of states than in the past,’’ said Sherwood.
Vote Solar’s Adam Browning is also quoted in the article.
