Solar is Booming in the US
While many Americans have heard of the failure of one solar manufacturer – Solyndra – the reality is that solar is booming in the U.S., with many other manufacturers growing exponentially. The best news is that the 70% per year annual growth is not just being fueled by environmentally-concerned consumers, but rather by “average Americans” who realize that solar can start saving them money — with little or no cash outlay!
I recommend reading David R. Baker’s January 20, 2014 article: Explosive Solar Growth for States’ Surviving Solar Firms, in which he says: “The number of solar installations — both large and small-scale — is booming. In 2013, the United States added enough new photovoltaic panels to generate a maximum of 4.2 gigawatts of electricity, roughly the output of four nuclear reactors.”
