Tampa is the top "Solar Builder" ranking #1 in this category of the 66 cities surveyed in the "Shining Cities 2017" report written by Frontier Group and the Environment America Research & Policy Center for those cities with between 5 and 25 watts of installed solar PV capacity per person.

This is solid recognition of the continuing promise of this region and Florida to develop into a "Solar Leader" or even a "Solar Star." However, in terms of total installed Solar PV on the ground, we have a long way to go to catch-up with the west coast! Jacksonville leads the State of Florida with 25 MW of total installed Solar PV capacity followed by Tampa at 9 MW. Not so much in the total scheme of all things "Solar." Let us know your thoughts regarding how we become that "Solar Leader" or "Solar Star."
