Tracking the Sun

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory recently announced the 10th annual edition of their Tracking the Sun report. This year’s report summarizes installed price trends for residential and non-residential photovoltaic (PV) systems installed in the United States through year-end 2016, with additional data for the first half of 2017. It is a companion to Berkeley Lab’s other annual solar market data report, Utility-Scale Solar, which focuses on the utility-scale sector and was recently released in its latest edition.

Tracking the Sun draws from a dataset maintained by Berkeley Lab, consisting of more than 1.1 million PV systems (a subset of which is ultimately analyzed within this report).
