Solar Energy in the U.S.

As illustrated by the U.S. map below, southwestern and western portions of the United States are the most suited for solar energy produc-tion.  This results from more hours of sunshine and relatively high sun angles, particularly in summer.  While not as suited for solar energy production as the Southwest, most of the Southeast can support solar production on a commercial and residential scale.
