Arizona had 52.83 total megawatts of solar capacity installed during the first quarter, and ranked third best in the country for residential solar with 41.9 megawatts, according to the latest U.S. Solar Market Insight report from the Solar Energy Industries Association and Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables.
