Solar Projects Remain Strong in Western U.S.

Industrial Info Resources is currently tracking more than $36 billion dollars in solar photovoltaic (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) capital projects scheduled to begin within the next year in the West Coast and Rocky Mountain regions of the United States.

The exact start dates of the projects depend upon funding, permitting and the states’ incentives to meet current renewable portfolio standards (RPS).

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) (GE) (Fairfield, Connecticut) recently announced its foray into the thin-film solar panel manufacturing field by acquiring PrimeStar Solar (Arvada, Colorado).
