Have you ever wondered how many homes your state could power with its current supply of solar energy? You’re not alone. The Team at SolarPower.guide wondered the same which prompted them to gather solar energy information from the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and create this map visual, ‘How Many Households Could Each State Power Using Only Solar Energy?’. It includes the percentage of households the states could power based on the capacity of installed solar energy systems in each state.
While some states were found to have very low capacities for solar energy, like North Dakota which could only power 0.013% of its homes, other states were found to have the capacity to power more than half of the households in the state. The sunny state of Hawaii came out on top and was found to have the capacity to be able to power just over 76% of its households. Which states were you surprised to see had such a high, or low, capacity of solar energy?
