    Arizona #1 ????? At least they recognize the gutting of the net-metering plan by APS is a bad thing.

    They broke the article into 13 pages... If you click All Pages, then you can read it on a single page:

    http://www.renewableenergyworld.com/rea/news/article/2013/07/rank-em-the-most-solar-friendly-states-in-the-u-s?page=all

    Each state has a ~3 paragraph write up about its ranking.

    Doh! (head slap to forehead) thanks Bill!

    I'm surprised that Washington state did not make the list given it's strong net metering policy, sales tax exemtion for solar equipment and very generous incentive payment system that allows rebate of up to 54 cents per kWh if inverter and panels are WA made.
