Solar energy installations smashed previous records in 2013, especially in the fourth quarter when more than 2.1 gigawatts of capacity of photovoltaics were installed.

The United States put in 4,751 megawatts of solar photovoltaic (PV) capacity in 2013. That’s 41 percent more than was installed in 2012, and it brings the total amount of solar PV in the country to 12.1 gigawatts — plus 410 megawatts of concentrated solar power, bringing that total to 918 megawatts.
...
Big drops in price helped solar along. The national average cost of a solar installation dropped from $3.05 per watt in 2013's third quarter — where it had been stuck for almost a year — to $2.59 per watt in the fourth quarter: a fall of 15 percent.
