The increase in solar installations nationally is continuing a very strong growth curve in both the utility and residential arenas.  Full data with impressive charts are available at this link from SEIA.

Locally, here at Power Trip Energy Corp, we increased the amount of pv installed by 70% over last year.  We are hoping to continue to increase at that pace again next year.  This year we added one new person, and are planning on adding three more people to our team next year to facilitate this growth.  We have added office space and we have sufficient warehouse space in order to accomplish those goals.  With continued price decreases in the cost of solar modules, and now with advantageous financing available, we have crossed a point beyond which the installation of grid-tied solar on a sunny roof is now economically compelling, regardless of the environmental benefits, increase in house value, and personal liberation.
