DOE: Solar Could Generate 40% of U.S. Power by 2035

The Biden administration and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) this week released a memo on solar energy research, deployment, and workforce priorities. According to the DOE document, solar generation “could supply more than 40% of U.S. electricity by 2035 if Congress implements clean energy policies, such as tax credits for solar farms and manufacturing facilities.” Solar generation currently produces around 3% of the U.S. electricity supply. 8/18/2021
