N.C. solar industry weathering the pandemic better than most states: The solar industry is weathering the pandemic better in North Carolina than in most states, data released today by SEIA show. The Tar Heel State will see 19% fewer solar workers than expected in June, according to the nonprofit trade group — hardly rosy projections but better than national predicted losses of 38%. A handful of states like New Jersey and New York will see cuts of more than 60%. The sector’s resilience here, home to the nation’s second-most solar power, is owed in part to the dominance of large-scale projects. SourceEnergy News Network
