Solar Means Business Factsheet

Share

U.S. businesses and top global brands are making historic investments in solar energy. As of 2019, Apple leads the nation with the most solar capacity installed, followed closely by Amazon, Target, Walmart and Google. There is 15 times more solar capacity installed by American businesses today than there was a decade ago.

SEIA’s eighth annual Solar Means Business Report follows solar adoption by businesses across the U.S., ranging from some of the country’s largest and most recognizable brands to the small businesses that make up our communities. In addition to the solar systems located on rooftops and at commercial facilities, this report also captures large off-site installations that U.S. companies invest in to power their operations. Both installation types have grown considerably in recent years.

Through 2019, this report tracks more than 8,300 megawatts (MW) of installed solar capacity across 38,000 projects in 43 states, representing more than 70% of all commercial solar capacity installed in the U.S.
