Solar Getting Closer...

As suspected, the transition toward renewable energy seems to start with legislation. According to a recent report from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council, Hawaii, Florida, and California have been greedily sucking up sunlight, doubling their photovoltaic capacity in 2008. Surprisingly, solar thermal devices (hot water heaters to the laymen) account for much of the gain, increasing in usage 500% in the continental US in the last 4 years.
Anyone looking for more info on tax credits for sustainable energy usage, check out the DSIRE.
