Report: Arizona is No. 2 in solar-installation capacity

PHOENIX — A report released this week shows that Arizona is ranked second
nationwide when it comes to the capacity of solar installations.

The report, issued by the Solar Energy Industries Association, covers the third
quarter of 2012.

According to the report, Arizona had 192 megawatts of energy installed
during that time behind California. Rounding out the top five were New Jersey,
Massachusetts and Nevada.

Arizona Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce said policies adopted by
the commission over the past two years have positioned Arizona to get more solar
power at lower costs. He said the commission has been reducing incentives as
demand for solar rises.
