Solar Energy Industry

With the passage of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), many renewable energy firms jumped on the opportunity to apply this boost to their bottom line – so long as they were able to meet the job-creation requirements and other criteria. Now the cash grant for alternative energy projects have expired you may wonder if alternative energy is a good alternative for you.

Alternative energy feasibility is largely driven by the states, and many states have alternative energy mandates already in place (California must get 33% of its energy supply from renewable sources by 2020 and Nevada utilities are required to get 20% by 2015 and 25% by 2025.)
