Top 10 Solar Energy States Per Capita

Clean Technica reports that “Environment America Research and Policy Center recently released Lighting the Way, a fascinating hard numbers–based take on the US solar energy boom, the top states that fostered it last year, and what the others are up to.

The research organization finds that the top 10 solar energy states—Arizona, California, Colorado, Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico and North Carolina—have initiated strong, cutting-edge policies that are enabling increasing numbers of homeowners, businesses, communities, and utilities to go solar. Environment America also touts rising stars like New York, Vermont, and Georgia.

Policymakers and developers in other states can use this type of information to help plan their own efforts. The Environment America report notes that solar photovoltaics produce 96% less global warming pollution per unit of energy than coal-fired power plants over their entire life cycle and cause 91% less global warming than natural gas-fired power plants.

    The very crux of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and one might do well to help fill in those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I will surely end up being amazed.

    With everything which appears to be developing within this subject material, many of your opinions tend to be relatively radical. Having said that, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your entire theory, all be it exciting none the less. It would seem to everyone that your commentary are actually not totally validated and in simple fact you are your self not even completely confident of your argument. In any case I did take pleasure in looking at it.

    I precisely wanted to say thanks once more. I do not know what I might have followed without these aspects shown by you directly on my area of interest. It had become the intimidating concern in my opinion, however , understanding the specialised manner you solved it took me to leap for fulfillment. I am just happy for the guidance as well as hope you are aware of an amazing job you were providing training people via a web site. I’m certain you’ve never got to know any of us.
