Photo Courtesy of PV Evolution Labs You probably heard the arguments why U.S. solar manufacturing can’t compete. Our labor costs are too high. It’s all automated so there aren’t that many jobs anyways. And it’s too late, we can’t catch-up with other countries. But what about the fact that there are already tens of thousands of Americans employed in renewable energy manufacturing; that manufacturing has the highest jobs multiplier of any industry; or that the U.S. has some of the best research laboratories in the world?

The Solar+ Decade & American Renewable Energy Manufacturing

SEIA has an ambitious goal – solar energy will constitute 20% of all U.S. electricity generation by 2030. To reach this target, the massive growth the solar industry realized over the last decade will need to continue for the next decade. We will need to grow our industry an average rate of 18% annually and install more than 500 gigawatts (“GW”) of solar projects by the end of 2030, including approximately 77 GW in 2030 alone. Achieving this goal will result in hundreds of thousands of new U.S. jobs, more than 14 million solar rooftops, and 500 million metric tons of avoided CO2 emissions.

Compounding issues, including supply chain delays, tightening of tax equity markets, homeowners’ financial concerns, shelter-in-place orders, and permitting challenges are all placing tremendous pressure on the industry. Without strategic government action, U.S. jobs and economic investment will suffer. With the right policies in place, the solar industry is poised to lead the U.S. out of this economic recession and create jobs for thousands of Americans.
