The Future Growth of the Solar Installations

Solar power pertains to the conversion of energy from sunlight to electricity through direct utilization of Photovoltaics or PV and utilizing concentrated solar power indirectly or a combination. The concentrated solar power systems make use of mirrors, lenses and reliable tracking systems to concentrate on a larger area of sunlight to the small beam.

In New Jersey, solar installations have become widespread and popular as more individuals are investing in these practical and environmentally friendly installation options.

There is also an expected growth of New Jersey Solar Installation, particularly in terms of Residential Solar Installation and this future growth covers the following:

* 2018 is believed to be the first year with over 100 GW of solar installed globally.

* The global market is expected to exceed 500 GW of installed solar capacity by the end of 2018.

* With over 2,000 MW installed in NJ, New Jersey solar installations make up less than half a percent of the global market. California on the other end makes up nearly 5% of global solar installations.

* New Jersey solar installations remain strong with New Jersey holding on to a top 5 stop for solar installations in the USA. In the USA the top 5 states for solar installations respectively are California, North Carolina, Arizona, Nevada, and New Jersey.
