Setting the Tone: National Perspective on Solar

  1. 1. Setting the Tone:  National Perspective Andrea Luecke Acting Executive Director andrea.luecke@solarfound.org www.TheSolarFoundation.orgU.S. has 5% of the world’s population and consumes 25% of the world’s energy The average American consumes as much energy as: 2 Japanese 6 Mexicans 13 Chinese 31 Indians 128 Bangladeshis 307 Tanzanians 370 Ethiopians Florida #3 in U.S. for High Summer Demand
  2. 2. Solar Works Well in ALL Parts  of the Continental U.S.Source: www.nrel.gov/gis/images/us_germany_spain/pvmap_usgermanyspain%20poster‐01.jpg PV Capacity Increases 73% Since 2000! $6B Industry with 300% Revenue Growth in Four YearsSource: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review
  3. 3. U.S. CSP is Poised for Growth 75 MW CSP plant comes online in Florida in 2010 – largest plant since 1991 Source: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review Annual Installed Solar Hot Water – Top 10  States SWH: Top 10 State Markets, 2007 - 2010 800 700 Florida is #3 solar 600 hot water market in U.S. Installed Capacity (tsf) 500 400 300 200 100 - Puerto Massach North New California Hawaii Florida Arizona Colorado Texas Rico usetts Carolina Mexico 2007 297 181 223 121 96 41 63 29 15 20 2008 304 652 240 77 262 69 80 64 23 42 2009 589 476 227 68 96 72 68 56 47 48 2010 681 285 240 183 96 77 71 59 55 51Source: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review
  4. 4. Cost of Installing PV is Rapidly DecreasingNational Weighted SunShot Goal = $1/Watt Average System ($0.06 kWh) by 2020 Prices 2010 Solar hot water is cost competitive in Florida now Source: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review Not Just In California Anymore… Florida ranks #3 with 114 MW installed in 2010 &155 MW cumulativeSource: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review
  5. 5. 2010 U.S. PV Installations by Market Segment In 2010: 1. California 259MW 2. New Jersey 137MW 3. Nevada  61MW 4. Arizona  54MW 5. Colorado 54MW 6. Pennsylvania 47MW In 2010, Florida installed 39 MW of PV (mostly large-scale utility) Total 918 MW in 2010: • off-grid domestic and non-domestic = 40 MW • grid-connected distributed = 636 MW • grid-connected centralized = 242 MWSource: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review U.S. Solar Jobs Growing at 26% Estimated Jobs in Top 20 States as Percent of Total Solar Jobs Florida ranks #13 with ~3,000 solar jobs Source:  The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census 2010
  6. 6. Manufacturing Creating Jobs at 36% Florida has no PV Map of Domestic PV Manufacturers manufacturingSource: SEIA/GTM Research – U.S. Solar Market Insight 2010 Year in Review  The Solar Foundation’s National Solar Jobs Census 2010 U.S. Net Exports Total $723m in 2009 Source: GTM Research, International Trade Commission
  7. 7. Comparing Florida to Other StatesFlorida has:• Sales Tax Exemption• Robust Solar Access Law• Some Utility Rebates, Incentives, and Loan Programs (esp. for SHW)• Some Local Government Rebate and Loan Programs• State PACE Legislation• Energy Reduction Goals for Public Buildings• Some Political Support• Strong Solar Advocacy Groups• Florida Solar Energy Center• Comprehensive quality control measures (licensing/permitting)• Skilled and trained workforce• Solar America City Designation (Orlando)• Supportive utilities in Central Florida• #1 Tourist Destination + Solar Power International 2012 (30,000 people!)• Gumption – 30 bills introduced BUT…
  8. 8. Solar on the Defensive• Political Attacks on Solar Programs (i.e. DOE Loan Guarantee  Program, CA – Prop 23, PA – legislation to reduce RPS requirements, WI‐ legislation trying to fulfill RPS from Canadian hydropower, PACE)• Program Cancellation and/or Unplanned Incentive  Reductions (i.e. AZ ‐ Salt River Project & Arizona Public Service Co., CO  – Xcel & Black Hills Energy, WI‐ WE Energies)• Expiring/Sunsetting Incentives (i.e. 1603 Treasury Program,  rebate programs in Ohio and Massachusetts)• Program Maturity (i.e. CA – Commercial CSI programs reaching  budgetary caps, PA – SREC capacities being reached)
  9. 9. Solar Opportunities in 2011• New Incentive Program Opportunities (i.e. MA REC  market coming together, SB32 FIT in CA, Renewable/Reverse Auction  Mechanism in CA)• Regulatory Proceedings Already Underway (i.e. 15‐year  SREC schedule in NJ, NEG and TRECs in California, PPAs in AZ)• Newly Convened Legislative Sessions (statewide  incentives in TX & NY among the priorities)• Obama’s Support for a Federal Clean Energy  Standard (80% by 2035) Thank You!
