Several states are making significant progress in terms of installed solar
capacity. California, for example, has enough solar panels installed to power
ofer 3 million homes. Progress in solar energy is influenced by many
factors: legislation, number of heating days, availability in the regional
market, etc. Regardless of what the cause may be, Virginia ranks 27th in
total installed capacity while being the 12th most populous state, which
leaves much room for improvement.
