Cleveland OH, March 7, 2022 – A new Freedonia Group analysis of the US solar roofing market forecasts triple-digit demand growth in the South through 2025, when the region will surpass the Northeast as the second leading regional market for solar roofing after the West, accounting for 7% of sales. Advances will be supported by the South’s sunnier (and thus more favorable) climate for solar-electric generation and the growing availability of incentives in states – particularly Delaware, Maryland, Florida, and the Carolinas – as well as localities (e.g., Austin, Texas; New Orleans, Louisiana).
Climate Actions Plans Boost Solar Installations, Even in Less Sunny States
Solar energy is expected to account for 6% of total US electricity generation in 2030. While most reliable and cost-effective in areas with abundant sunshine (e.g., Arizona, California, Florida), solar-electric generation is also increasing as a renewable supplement to fossil fuels in the Northeast and Midwest, where a growing number of states and localities offer incentives to install solar products to increase their mix of renewable energy sources. As more property owners become aware of the benefits of installing solar products – including increased property values, improved energy efficiency, and tax credits, rebates, and other incentives – penetration of solar roofing will increase in both commercial and residential roofing markets.
