Annual Utility Market Survey

What Is the Survey?

Every year, utilities across our nation have answered our request for data and that data powers our annual survey. Through this survey, we provide the electric power industry with a trusted source of unbiased US solar market information.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the survey and we are pleased to announce that the survey is expanding. For the first time, SEPA’s Annual Utility Market Survey will collect data on the following topics:

Demand Response (new)
Energy Storage (new)
Advanced Metering Infrastructure (new)

Why Your Utility Should Participate.

Participating in our survey helps us provide accurate data to the industry and helps you as well. Check out all the ways we use the data you provide and how you can use those outputs to benefit your utility.

Top 10 Awards

Utilities in the top 10 in each survey category are officially recognized by SEPA for their accomplishments. Many utilities have found these awards instrumental in their ability to successfully apply for additional grants for clean energy projects.

Utility Market Snapshot Series

Through this report series, we take the data you provide and report out on the findings of our nationwide survey. Use these reports to learn about trends and where utilities are heading with solar, demand response, storage, and AMI.

Utility Benchmark Report

Available only to survey participants, you will receive a benchmarking report that allows you to see where you rank compared to other utilities. Many participants use this data for filings and public relations efforts with customers.

Utility Solar Database

Data for the survey is stored in our Utility Solar Database. SEPA members have unlimited access to this interactive clearinghouse for information on utilities’ solar and distributed energy technology deployments.
