  •  
    • Already, the cost of solar PV and solar thermal is market competitive at peak demand times.
  • Despite a weak global economy, markets have grown rapidly in response to higher demand.
    • The PV sector installed 62 megawatts-peak (MWp) in new annual capacity in 2009, up almost ninefold over 2008.
    • From 2000 to 2009, solar thermal expanded at a compound annual growth rate of 20%, to about 260 megawatts thermal (MWth) from 20 MWth.
  • The industry is creating new, high technology jobs.
  • Approx. 3,000 jobs have been created to date, by 2025 the industry expects to support more than 35,000 jobs.
