Solar Energy is one of the fastest growing energy resources in the country, accounting for nearly one-third of new electric generating capacity in 2020. The rapidly falling price of solar resources has helped accelerate investments, often providing lower prices than traditional fossil fuel resources. Furthermore, as of mid-2019 electric generation from solar energy employed more Americans than any other resource.

Solar can also be applied in many ways on different scales: on-roof residential, shared community solar, commercial or industrial applications, or large utility-scale projects.
