Battery Storage Seen Quadrupling Capacity In 2021, U.S. Says

Not only is solar set for a record-breaking additional capacity year in 2021, the new U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) report estimates that utility-scale battery storage will increase a record four-fold in 2021, continuing the trend of pairing renewable energy sites with battery storage. The EIA projects that paired energy sites will jump with greater than 56 more paired sites coming online by 2023 -- combining solar and wind sites with battery storage. Although these are utility-scale measurements, they indicate the important leading role of solar, wind and storage batteries make in generating new electricity capacity to the grid in 2021.

California In Top Four States Planning More Electricity Hybrid Operating Capacity

The four top states for operating and planned energy storage by gigawatts are: Texas, Nevada, California and Florida. In all, just nine states generate more than 90% of total operating hybrid capacity. This is measured by renewable generator plus energy storage. Solar Integrated Roofing Corp. (OTC PINK: SIRC) is a certified installer of Tesla's (NASDAQ: TSLA) Powerwall line of lithium-ion solar batteries.

SIRC Raising Its Sales 'Tickets' With Multiple Solar-Related Installations

David Massey, SIRC CEO, said, "Our main focus is roofing and solar," he said. However, the company is "able to raise the amount of its (sales) tickets" Massey explained by partnering with Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) as a certified installer of that company's solar battery backup Powerwall product. The net result is that SIRC can install a solar battery system and generate additional revenue.

SIRC Home Base Of California Is One Of Four Peak Clean Energy Growth States

The new U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) report cites four states as key to the growth of renewable energy — Texas (28%), Nevada (9%), California (9%) and North Carolina (7%). More than half of all utility-scale solar, setting a new record of adding nearly 12 GW of electricity in 2021, is planned in those four states alone, it said.

California Mandates Solar In 2020 And Later New Residences

As California's law now mandates solar energy systems for new residences built in 2020 and beyond, there are many new opportunities for expansion for SIRC.

New Strategies And Partnerships Present SIRC With Multiple Solar Opportunities

Massey, SIRC CEO, said of the company's entry into new home developments alongside several San Diego builders, "In addition to the roofing and solar revenue from each new housing development, we maintain the upside opportunity to sell the end home buyer additional solar or battery storage solutions, creating an exciting new sales pipeline for our growing team."

SIRC Shares Seen As Trading North Of $1.00 And Beyond In 2021
