This week, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie signed a law meant to reinvigorate the solar industry in the Garden State by requiring utilities to buy more solar energy.
At the same time, though, hope is fading that a similar fix will help Pennsylvania's solar industry anytime soon.
Prices for renewable energy credits tanked in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey when the market was flooded with too many new solar arrays.
The problem hit Pennsylvania much worse, and nearly destroyed demand for new installations.
