Overview

Beginning in January 2017, we required some of the respondents for the annual survey Form EIA-63B, Photovoltaic Module Shipments Report, to report monthly data. The subset of respondents now must report monthly accounts for about 90% of photovoltaic (PV) activity in the United States, based on 2021 data.

Data collected on both the monthly and annual Form EIA-63B are protected from disclosure of individual company data. As a result of this protection, monthly data are not published in some tables.

The tables in this report are:

  • Table 1. U.S. photovoltaic industry status
    • Not published monthly
  • Table 2. Value and average value of photovoltaic module shipments
    • Refer to Table 3.
  • Table 3. Monthly photovoltaic module shipments
    • This table includes the total shipments, values, and average values of module shipments by year and month. This table is a compilation of annual Tables 2, 3, and 4.
  • Table 4. Average value of photovoltaic modules
    • Refer to Table 3.
  • Table 5. Source and disposition of photovoltaic cell shipments
    • No longer published as of 2016
  • Table 6. Source and disposition of photovoltaic module shipments
    • U.S. shipments and sales to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for resale and export shipments are not published for January and July to protect individual company data.
  • Table 7. Photovoltaic module import shipments by country
    • Imports at the national level are included in Table 6. Country of origin is not published to protect the confidentiality of individual company data.
  • Table 8. Destination of photovoltaic module export shipments
    • Exports at the national level are included in Table 6. Destination country is not published to protect the confidentiality of individual company data.
  • Table 9. U.S. photovoltaic module shipments by state or territory
    • Individual data for most states are not published to protect the confidentiality of individual company data.
