SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwired - May 19, 2016) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- Solar Power is shining brightly in the U.S., where developers have scheduled construction starts for 169 projects totaling $25.67 billion between the start of 2016 and the end of 2020, according to Industrial Info's North American Industrial Project Database. Under legislation passed last December by Congress, solar projects that begin construction before the end of 2019 are eligible for a 30% investment tax credit (ITC).
