Helen Livingston's family has owned a 300-acre farm near Maxton for generations. Now 45 acres of the land is covered with more than 26,000 dark solar panels, making it part of a growing movement to harvest electricity from the sun.
Solar farms like Livingston's are cropping up all over North Carolina, shining rays of hope on economically depressed areas by bringing jobs, a constant stream of revenue and the potential to attract eco-friendly industry and economic investment.
Delaware residents are embracing a program that allows homeowners to lease solar panels without making large upfront investments in the technology, the company that offers the service is reporting.
SolarCity, which formally entered Delaware in February when it opened a warehouse in this state, recently has made a push on the East Coast to expand its business model of placing its solar panels on customers’ homes, generating electricity that leads to lower customer utility bills.
It is no coincidence that companies like Innovative Solar Systems have expanded and are now primarily only developing and building solar farm projects that are over 20MW in size. By increasing the size of these solar farm projects in the U.S many things happen: the cost to lease the land goes down, the cost of the equipment is less and of course the labor to construct and build these massive solar farm projects are much less. Softer costs like legal, environmental studies and engineering can also be less if spread over the entire size of the project.
Give or take a few hazy mornings or dust storm-influenced afternoons, the sun shines in Phoenix more than 300 days a year. That’s been one of the consistent selling points on why the Valley — and the state of Arizona overall — should be the center of the universe of the solar industry.
Reality, though, indicates something a lot different.

The U.S. solar industry could be on the verge of an industry-transforming decision from the U.S. International Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Commerce. It's the next chapter in the SolarWorld-inspired Chinese solar panel trade case and anti-dumping claim.
A former dump once littered with piles of trash could become home to rows of solar panels if PSE&G wins approval for the project. The public utility company is seeking preliminary and final site plan approval for a 9 megawatt solar array at the shuttered Parklands Landfill on Route 206.
We’re not only first selectmen, we’re also homeowners. Electricity is a large chunk of our families’ budgets, and rates are only going up. The people in our towns deserve to hold on to their hard-earned money, which is why we helped our towns collaborate on Solarize Easton-Redding-Trumbull. This limited-time program helps homeowners insulate themselves from rising energy costs and lower their electric bills through solar.
This Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks will face off against the Denver Broncos for the ultimate Super Bowl XLVIII showdown. But the real battle for this year's bowl has already been won, and it has nothing to do with touchdowns.
Job growth in 2013 stayed sluggish for much of the American economy.
But for solar companies, it was a banner year.
