Over the past few years, demand for renewable energy has grown dramatically. Consumers, utilities, and businesses with sustainability goals have played a large role in driving this demand. More than 200 companies worldwide have made commitments to go 100% renewable. In addition, the State of Michigan has set a goal for utilities to generate 15% of their electricity from renewable sources by 2021.
Because solar energy is clean, reliable, and affordable, it has earned the spot as the fastest-growing source of electricity in the world.
