Utility-Scale Solar Farms Of The Future Are IoT Enabled
- Apr 5, 2021 6:03 pm GMT
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) defines a solar project as utility-scale only when it generates over 1 megawatt (MW) of solar energy, while the National Renewable Energy Laboratory uses a 5 MW threshold to qualify utility-scale solar projects. Over the last two years, according to Energy Information Administration, renewable energy resources have been the nation’s fastest growing electricity generation source. With nearly 12,000 major solar projects, representing more than 160 GW of capacity, nearly 47 GW of major solar projects are currently in operations--leaving more than 115 GW of large-scale solar projects either under construction or under development, according to SEIA.
