California Solar Declines an Estimated 40 Percent in January

We published our January 2017 Solar Index report, and initial estimates indicate that installation activity in California declined by approximately 40 percent year over year. 

California experienced strong rain in January, which likely had a major impact on the decline, although there may be other market factors. Certain areas in California have high solar penetration and early adoption may have hit a saturation point.  In addition, utility net metering changes have impacted the potential consumer savings on solar.
