Solar energy can account for 40% of U.S. electricity by 2035

The Biden administration has released a report showing that the United States can get 40% of its electricity from solar energy by 2035.

The Solar Futures Study outlines how solar energy can help decarbonize the U.S. power grid and help achieve a Biden administration goal of net zero emissions in the electricity sector by 2035.

The report lays out several steps the United States should take to achieve the 40% target, including installing 30 gigawatts per year of solar capacity between now and 2025 and 60 GW a year between 2025 and 2030.
