Mississippi ranks 9th in solar growth in second quarter

JACKSON – Mississippi ranked ninth in the country in solar power growth in the second quarter by adding 92.9 megawatts, thanks largely to projects brought online by utilities.

The U.S. industry installed 2,387 megawatts of solar facilities for the quarter, a record increase of 8 percent over the year-earlier quarter, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).

“This report shows once again that solar is on the rise and will continue to add to its share of electricity generation,” SEIA President and Chief Executive Abigail Ross Hopper said in a release.
