The time for solar energy is now.
Last year, renewable energy investments in solar energy and wind power technologies in the United States ruled the worldwide market, thrusting the United States beyond China, and into the head spot, based on findings from Ernst and Young in their most recent Renewable Energy Country Attractiveness Index.
Michael Bernier, Senior Manager of the Ernst and Young report states, “The State Attractiveness Indices data enables us to look at specific states and regions and understand what they are doing with renewable energy development and infrastructure on a microscopic level. It enables us to fine-tune the discussion about the overall US market. Moreover, this report uncovers the new national leaders in energy infrastructure. Massachusetts, for example, is a top-five solar market due to a multitude of state-level initiatives, even though it is not the sunniest market. Like Colorado, Massachusetts is building up its research and development in addition to its manufacturing facilities. These factors make renewable energy development in these states possible and further investment probable.”
These are important pieces of great news for the solar energy sector across the United States, and prove that solar energy isn’t going anywhere but up. REVE.com journalists write, “The continuance of [these] tax credit would have a significant impact on what has become a thriving domestic manufacturing sector.”
For places like Arizona, Texas, California, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and others, solar tax credits and solar rebates on the state and federal level will be the spring boards that make solar energy pop over the next several years, so it’s important that we all do what we can to take advantage of them, and preserve them as voters.
