Solar Power Keeps Seguing



GTM’s Q2 market briefing is out, identifying current US trends in the residential solar market: residential installers are concentrating on expanding the market in 10 US states, especially California, Hawaii, Arizona and New Jersey. State incentives are becoming less important as installation costs fall. Direct ownership, rather than leasing, is becoming an increasingly attractive option.

Solar module prices recently reached yet another record low, making solar power ever more affordable. SunEdison stocks are near yearly highs, as the infusion of an activist board member in the past two years helped turn the company into one that is generating solar panels and projects around the world.

Meanwhile, US solar investment company Mosaic and Enphase are collaborating in an efforts to pushsolar loans instead of leases.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here.

This is how YOU can make a difference.
