“The Great Unknown”

‘2012 looks to be a year of healthy PV growth in North America, but many questions remain’

Photon magazine has predicted the outlook for PV capacity growth and decline for all U.S. states in a recent published article.

Tennessee appears to be one of the largest growth states for the year of 2012, with a predicted capacity of 55.0 MW to be added. In 2011, there was an estimated 18.0 MW installed in the state of Tennessee.

Most sections of the U.S. are showing steady growth for this year, except for most Midwestern states.
