High Water Mark for NJ Solar?

EnviroPolitics is a blogsite that offers a unique closeup on "Environmental and political news, issues and opinion for New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and Delaware." In recent months they've written several articles on the growth of solar power in New Jersey.

For the last decade, solar power has become increasingly popular in NJ due largely to state financial incentives designed to encourage it's development.

New Jersey ranks second only to California in total installed solar capacity with over 9,000 solar projects having a capacity of more than 320 megawatts. With a much smaller land area, we have by far the most solar capacity per square mile of any state.

But their latest article warns of the prospects for the light dimming on NJ's solar future.
