We all know that the shoe fits when it comes to solar water heating in Arizona. Just look at all that sunshine. But how could it be that California solar energy regulations could have an impact on how the solar energy industry works in Arizona?
According to the Phoenix Business Journal, the newly approved “large-scale solar thermal plant” in California could mean an overall and refreshed look at solar energy in the Southwestern United States. This isn’t just good news for those who own and operate solar power companies in Arizona — it’s phenomenal news for Arizona energy consumers as well.
Todd Woody of the New York Times notes that there has been an aggressive march toward passing solar energy regulations all across the Southwest, but this newly approved solar power plant in California could be one of the most powerful catalysts the industry has seen in a long time.
Of course there will always be proponents and opponents of the solar energy and other renewable energy sources because though most consumers wish to preserve and “go green” they are also scared of the change and unsure of the longterm benefits they might garner from a reality-based standpoint.
At Adair Solar we strive to help make this transition an easy one — we offer ways for Arizona hot water heating through solar technology and hope to see the industry grow and hopefully become the new norm for the entire region.
