  • Delaware ranks seventh in the U.S. for per capita cumulative solar installations, according to an Aug. 5 report by Environment America Research & Policy Center.
    Milford and Dover were ranked first and seventh nationally for cumulative solar watts per customer. Statewide solar capacity grew from 2 to 59 megawatts, with 1,600 solar energy systems installed on Delaware buildings since 2008.
    By offering programs like Solar Renewable Energy Credits and financial incentives for businesses and homeowners installing solar power equipment, state officials hope to reach the goal of 3.5 percent power from solar energy by 2025.
