Solar Energy Incentives in Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Skyline - Green Solar Technologies

Pennsylvanians have a lot to be proud about. In 1776, the catalytic Declaration of Independence was written by Thomas Jefferson and courageously signed by the founding fathers in Philadelphia, America’s original capital city. Then in 1787 at the Philadelphia Convention (now known as the Constitutional Convention), the Constitution of the Unites States was drafted by then future-President James Madison and made official law of the new nation. The Keystone State’s motto is “Virtue, Liberty, and Independence” appropriately, and is famous worldwide for Valley Forge, Gettysburg, the Liberty Bell, and Independence Hall. The country’s first circulating library, the Library Company of Philadelphia, was founded in 1731 by Benjamin Franklin. The first all-motion-picture theater in the world was opened on...

Is Solar Power Worth the Switch in the Sunshine State?

Posted on Sep 1, 2017

For the past few years, Floridians have been asking themselves if their state is a good place for home or business solar energy. The answer to this question has been hazy in the past but steady winds of change have separated the clouds, shedding a positive light on this subject as more and more Floridians have made the switch to solar. Although there are relatively few rebates in Florida, there are still some compelling reasons to consider home or business solar panel generation systems as many others have. One major reason why going solar is a great option in Florida has to do with the amount of sunlight hours this state gets. They don't call Florida the sunshine state for anything, do they? More sunlight means huge savings in the overall cost for solar. The more sunlight you get, the less solar panels you’ll need to produce the same amount of...

Solar Energy Incentives in North Carolina

Posted on Aug 29, 2017

Not many would disagree that North Carolina has quite a storied past. Originally home to the Eastern tribe of Cherokee Natives, it was the first colony to declare independence from England in 1775 with the Mecklenburg Declaration, ultimately becoming the 12th state to join the Union. Some would say the United States has “the Old North State” to thank for initiating the revolution which would win the country’s independence. Prideful about its authenticity, NC’s state motto is Esse quam videri, which means “To be, rather than to seem.” Affectionately referred to as the “Tar Heel State,” NC is also known as the official land of shipwrecks. Its Outer Banks are often referred to as the “Graveyard of the Atlantic” because the state’s 200-mile stretch of barrier islands has sunk upwards of 5,000 ships. And if all of this wasn’t interesting enough,...

Solar Energy Incentives in Texas

Many things can be said for the great state of Texas. It was its own country for a decade before it joined the union by treaty in 1845. The word “Texas” was the Spanish pronunciation “Tejas” of the Hasinai Native American word meaning “allies” or “friends.” (In fact, the Texas state motto is “friendship.”) Texas is the second most populous state and one of the nation’s largest measuring in at approximately at 268,601 square miles. Texas still owns all of its public lands. If the federal government wants to create a park or cut a stand of timber, it must first ask the state’s permission. Texas has also been synonymous with abundant energy production in oil for over a century, and more recently in wind. Knowing this, it stands as no surprise that the "Lone Star" State is now considered prime real estate for...

International Trade Dispute Could Cast Shade on Solar Industry

International Trade Dispute Could Cast Shade on Solar Industry

The co-complainants are claiming that foreign panel manufacturers have been dumping their products - selling goods at or below cost in order to drive out the competition in an effort to gain market share - into the U.S.

If the ITC decides that dumping has occurred, it will recommend to the President to impose a tariff on solar panels. This could have major ramifications throughout the solar industry. Some companies are, understandably, petitioning against the ITC to impose a tariff. These companies rely on cheap, imported materials for their solar installations and could be significantly hurt by an increase in panel prices.

One company, however, stands apart in this dispute - Green Solar Technologies. This company is testifying on behalf of SolarWorld in front of the ITC.

Edward Harner, COO of Green Solar Technologies , states "We feel that American...
