The Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) announced its list of the Top 10 American electric utilities that have added the most new solar power to their systems and the most solar on a watts-per-customer basis in 2012. This annual ranking, which identifies the companies that are integrating solar into the nation's power grid, is part of the sixth annual Utility Solar Rankings report. The full report, which will be released in May 2013, identifies leading solar industry trends such as total installed capacity, market share and industry growth rates.

Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) was the only municipal utility to make this year’s Top 10 MW list, taking the ninth spot with nearly 70 MW. SMUD’s portfolio was driven by the utility’s procurement of more than 50 MW of large-scale PV projects through the build-out of their 2010 RFP solicitation process.
