Overview

Beginning in January 2017, some respondents to the Form EIA-63B, Photovoltaic Module Shipments Report, survey were required to report monthly data. The subset of respondents who now must report monthly represents approximately 90% of photovoltaic (PV) activity in the United States, based on 2016 data.

Data collected on 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 include

  • Table 1. U.S. photovoltaic industry status
    • Not published at a monthly level.
  • Table 2. Value and average value of photovoltaic module shipments
    • See Table 3.
  • Table 3. Monthly shipments, value, and average value
    • This table includes the total shipments, values, and average values of module shipments by month. This table is a compilation of annual Tables 2, 3, and 4.
  • Table 4. Average value of photovoltaic modules
    • See Table 3.
  • Table 5
    • No longer published as of 2016.
  • Table 6. Source and disposition of photovoltaic modules
    • U.S. shipments and sales to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for resale and export shipments are not published for February, March, June, July, August, and September 2018 to protect individual company data.
  • Table 7. Photovoltaic module import shipments by country.
    • Imports at the national level are published 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 published 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/territory.
    • Individual data for most states are not published to protect the confidentiality of individual company data. Total U.S. shipments and sales to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) for resale are not published for February, March, June, July, August, and September to protect individual company data.
