The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) says nearly half of planned capacity additions in 2022 will be solar energy resources.
The 21.5 GW of solar expected to come online in 2022 surpasses last year’s 15.5 GW.
EIA said it expects 46.1 GW of new utility-scale generating capacity to be added to the U.S. power grid this year. Around 21.5 GW (46%) of that would be from solar projects, 9.6 GW (21%) from natural gas projects and 7.6 GW (17%) from wind additions. EIA said it expects an additional 5.1 GW (11%) to come from energy storage projects.
