More than half a million Arizona homes are powered by solar. 6.09% of Arizona’s power output comes from solar energy, adding at least 67 megawatts in the first quarter of 2018. The state is now running on a total of 3,463 megawatts.
Millions of dollars in solar investments poured into Arizona this year. According to The Solar Foundation, solar jobs in Arizona grew to more than 8,300.
