The state of Utah is on the precipice of a solar revolution, but its trajectory could be disrupted by the looming expiration of the federal investment tax credit (ITC) for solar energy.
Only exceeded by China, the United States is the world’s largest producer of greenhouse gases, with the largest source of emissions coming from electricity generation. America is changing its course and the U.S. solar energy industry is leading the way on this new road; a path to a clean energy future.
Chalk one up for clean energy! In a precedent-setting decision, the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the constitutionality of Colorado’s renewable portfolio standard (RPS), ruling that the state’s RPS does not impose unlawful regulations on out-of-state companies. This was a huge win for the solar and wind industries.
Think about this for a second: If California was a nation, it would rank 6th in the world in installed solar capacity. Wow.

California has cemented its place as America’s solar leader, according to recently-released statistics, and now stands poised to become the first state in the nation to have 10 gigawatts (GW) of installed solar capacity – enough to power nearly 2.5 million homes.
In 1970, the first ever Earth Day was held to demonstrate broad global support for environmental protection. At the time, the world’s population stood at 3.63 billion. Today, that number has more than doubled.
