Last newsletter, we highlighted the record breaking US solar market. Now the global market is taking the center stage.  In 2016, the global PV market saw a 50% increase in installed solar from the year before.  An astonishing 75 Gigawatts of solar capacity was installed around the globe, with the lion’s share of that installed in China and North America. To give some perspective, 75 GW is enough to power 15,000,000 homes.  The record breaking year of 2016 brings total global solar capacity to 303 GW.  More information and details from the International Energy Agency (IEA) report found here.
