U.S. businesses and top global brands are making historic investments in solar energy. As of June 2022, Meta leads the nation with the most solar capacity installed, followed closely by Amazon, Apple, Walmart and Microsoft. Nearly 19 gigawatts (GW) of solar capacity has been installed with commercial and corporate off-takers, more than half of which has come online since 2020.
SEIA’s ninth Solar Means Business Report tracks solar and energy storage 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, which now account for 55% of all commercial solar use. Through June 2022, this report tracks more than 18,500 megawatts (MW) of installed solar capacity across 48,000 projects, representing more than 70% of all commercial solar capacity installed in the U.S.
