U.S. Solar Market Booms, With Utility-Scale Projects Leading the Way

Industry report says solar installations could increase tenfold by 2015

I think that is just a matter

I think that is just a matter of time. Here in the Netherlands, a lot of my friends have rooftop solar powered houses.

Solar Boom?

Where's the rooftop solar?

Millions of consumers & small businesses should have the ability to power from the sun. Not just the big utilities. They are basically putting a meter on the sun at taxpayer expense.

The extra few hundred dollars (off the power bill) from each consumer will create more jobs and give the economy a boost. 

Subsidizing the utilities to meter the sun (or wind) just doesn't make good sense.
