feature-0-1415800443105.jpg We’ve all heard the solar statistics. Like how our industry has grown from $800 million in 2006 to $15 billion today. Or the fact that we’re now installing 20 gigawatts globally in two years, which had taken 40 years to complete before. Three consecutive years of growth, more than 150,000 Americans directly employed, nine out of ten Americans support solar, solar’s responsible for more than half of the new electric generation capacity installed in Q1 and Q2 of this year, etc. etc. It’s easy to get lost in all the milestones we’ve reached and the positive impact we’re having on our local economies, our aging grid, our energy independence—and let’s not forget — the environment.
