The US market installed over 15 gigawatts-dc (GWdc) of photovoltaics (PV) in 2016, a record breaking amount for the market, over 80% of which was accounted for by non-residential installations. The top 5 EPCs captured nearly 50% (~48%) of the total non-residential PV market in 2016. Aside from First Solar, the top 5 EPC companies were primarily characterized as diversified firms that do not have an exclusive focus on solar.
