World growth in solar installations is growing at exponential levels.  A report on states, “The largest on-grid market by far to date has been Japan, where demand has been stimulated by large government funding programs.  This is followed by Germany, where grid-connected applications are also stimulated by major market incentive programs.”

The United States now has a federal government tax credit program to accompany some state’s subsidy programs, which will propel the U.S. Alternative Energy industry into a dominant position in the world.  With the 30% federal tax credit for consumers who install solar PV systems, the solar market is set to reach unprecedented heights.
