The U.S. Energy Information Administration has begun including data on small scale solar PV installations in its Electric Power Monthly reports, noting that the systems “have grown significantly in the United States over the past several years.” . . . Although each distributed PV system is very small [defined as up to 1MW], EIA noted that “there are hundreds of thousands of these systems across the country that add up to a substantial amount of electricity generating capacity.”
