US New Solar Market To Exceed 4,000 Megawatts In 2013

Here is another example of the shale gas boom killing renewables.

New US solar generation that was below 500 megawatts per year in 2008, reached a bit less than 1,000 megawatts in 2010, then 2,000 megawatts in 2011, 3,000 megawatts in 2012, and is projected to hit a rather incredible 4,000 megawatts plus next year.  Solar is likely to be about 25% of all new US capacity built in 2013.  Wow!  http://www.solarbuzz.com/news/recent-findings/california-poised-regain-us-solar-pv-dominance-reports-npd-solarbuzz.
