All that money spent is starting to show some payoff.. lets hope it continues:

2013 is a ‘record-shattering’ year for solar power in America

The outlook for solar power in America is bright and sunny. The U.S. solar industry recorded its second largest quarter ever in the third quarter of 2013, and the largest quarter ever for residential installations. For the first time in more than 15 years, America is on track to install more solar capacity this year than world leader Germany.

This news emerged out of a quarterly report from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) on the state of the solar power market in the U.S..

“Without a doubt, 2013 will go down as a record-shattering year for the U.S. solar industry,” said Rhone Resch, SEIA president and CEO. “We’ve now joined Germany, China, and Japan as worldwide leaders when it comes to the installation of new solar capacity. This unprecedented growth is helping to create thousands of American jobs, save money for U.S. consumers, and reduce pollution nationwide.”

A nice quote from the article:

Solar is now the second largest source of new electricity capacity in the U.S., behind natural gas, and GTM estimates that by the end of 2013, more than 400,000 solar projects will be operating around the country. A new solar project is installed every four minutes in the U.S.

Yes but we went to #1 and passed Germany.. As long as we are #1 and beat someone everyone should be happy.

I wish Lincolns Mullet was here, He might shed a tear for the growth.
