Solar being adopted by more top businesses
Tree Hugger - Solar energy is proving to be an affordable source of clean electricity for more US businesses, and adoption rates are rapidly growing, with solar installations seeing 59% growth in just the last year alone.
According to the latest version of a study by the Solar Energy Industries Association, US businesses are choosing solar energy at record rates, and not because they're all granola-eating tree huggers, but because it makes sense to their bottom line. Thanks in part to rapidly falling solar costs, which for commercial projects has dropped almost 30% over the last three years, and which hit a low of just a hair over $3 per watt earlier this year, going solar is a cost-effective method of not only reducing a company's carbon footprint, but also reducing its overall costs.
