Progressive Solar Legislation Passes State Senate
Washington - Some of the most progressive renewable energy legislation ever proposed for a U.S. state is steamrolling its way through Washington's state legislature.
With overwhelming bi-partisan support, the state Senate passed two bills that would create a thriving market for renewable energy in the state.
The first bill -- the production-based incentive bill -- is particularly important because it reflects a new policy approach for promoting renewable energy that has been boiling up among supporters.
While it would represent a paradigm shift for solar legislation in the U.S., it's not an altogether new approach. Any solar PV installer trying to order or maintain a good supply of solar modules knows where else this approach has been staggeringly effective -- Germany.
