Solar in DC

Solar Potential in DC


Based on estimates by Mapdwell and data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration for electricity sales in Washington, DC, we estimate that solar could provide about 30% of the District’s electricity needs. Estimates by the U.S. Department of Energy indicate that there is more than 10 times the roof space necessary for DC to meets the DC Renewable Portfolio Standard of 2.5% solar by 2023 (Sources: Mapdwell and EIA)
