Despite the solar market's impressive trajectory over the past decade, there is still a significant amount of growth needed before solar, and renewables in general, make up a substantial portion of our energy generation. As the solar market continues to mature, the policy landscape becomes increasingly complex, with the implementation of new regulations, Net Energy Metering (NEM) rules, and less favorable utility rate structures. This complicates the solar value read more...
