As we advance into 2019, the residential solar industry finds itself in a very different place compared to the start of 2018. A year ago massive uncertainty surrounding President Trump’s solar tariff decision cast a shadow over the industry; this year there is optimism about a return to growth.
Of course, solar remains a rapidly evolving industry and likely overall market growth in 2019 belies significant changes happening at the ground level in all aspects of how residential solar is delivered to consumers. The coming year will see continued evolution and maturation in the residential solar market including important trends in financing, product offerings, market structure, and technology.
Here are five predictions for what lies ahead for the residential solar industry in 2019. And if you’re a residential company looking to capitalize on these trends and grow your business this year, Sighten’s solar software platform can help you stay ahead of the curve - schedule a demo of our design and proposal tool here.
