Team Nexamp | Aug 14, 2017

With a record breaking 14.8 gigawatts of solar projects installed last year, 2016 marked solar’s biggest year ever, proving that solar energy is here to stay.

In fact, Q4 was the largest quarter on record for solar, sending the industry into 2017 with a full head of steam.
