The Top 10 Solar States

Environment America published a report documenting its findings of how solar is growing as a source of power. “Solar electric power tripled in the U.S. between 2011 and 2013 and ten states are responsible for 87% percent of that growth,” Environment America reports.

Arizona is the clear winner, producing  275 watts per person. But recent changes to the law regarding net-metering are making it harder for home-owners to choose solar. Vote Solar and other organizations are opposing this change; keep up with them here.

Close runners-up are Hawaii, Nevada, and California. There were also several smaller states on the list, including New Jersey, Delaware, and Massachusetts.

This month we’ve seen the organization of a great national event series, we’ve learned more about solar power and we’ve dished out advice on renewable energy! Read more HERE!
