NREL compares state solar policies to determine equation for solar market success
Analysts at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory have used statistical analyses and detailed case studies to better understand why solar market policies in certain states are more successful. Their findings indicate that while no standard formula for solar implementation exists, a combination of foundational policies and localized strategies can increase solar photovoltaic installations in any state.
