The debates and disagreements between utility companies and the solar industry have been an issue since the very conception of solar power. There are often questions of stepping on each other’s territory. However, according to an article recently completed by The Boston Globe, a new Massachusetts bill allowed officials from both industries to unite, for perhaps the first time ever.

According to an article completed by the Solar Energy Industries Association, for decades those in the solar energy industry have worked to enter the ‘major leagues’ of the energy market—to be acknowledged and employed as a typical and popular energy source. That goal has now been achieved, according to the article; as of last year, solar energy power generating capacities in the United States accounted for the second largest group of new units installed in the nation.

New mandates have been released by the Environmental Protection Agency that focus on the loser in the clean energy race—coal. However, according to an article recently completed by CNBC, critics of the mandates say that downgrading coal should not be the focus; providing, referencing and citing alternative energy sources should be what the regulations draw attention to.

The United States Commerce Department has announced new tariffs to be placed on solar panels and solar cells produced in China. Another case has been filed to apply similar tariffs on products made in Taiwan. Specifically, antidumping and countervailing duty tariffs have been applied; these tariffs are very complicated issues that will have even further complications to be applied to the entire solar industry.

As part of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, the United States’ EPA has introduced the Clean Power Plan—a proposed rule that applies to existing power plants in regards to regulating carbon dioxide emissions. Carbon dioxide is a well-known factor in contributing to global warming and has, therefore, become of high importance to the Obama Administration.

Living sustainably we reduce our dependency on foreign oil or we live completely without the electric company and you be your power company. You could bring your electric car home. Plug it into your own solar power generating station and run your car for free off the sun.

We are very excited about the new Outback 4048A Radian Inverter and the 8048A Radian Inverter, which is the Grid Zero Inverter. Everybody should be excited about this inverter. This inverter will be a game changer, and critical in changing the face of solar to promote it for the future. These inverters allow everyone to cut or perhaps completely eliminate their electric bill without getting permission from the electric company, the government or anyone.

In the United States, we typically keep 60 gallons of hot water in a closet to use when we need it. This is the equivalent of leaving our car running in the garage, all day and night in case we may need to drive it. Most of the rest of the world makes hot water on demand only at the time they need it and they make only the amount they need.

Living sustainably can include living off-the-grid, or on the grid. In Obama’s State of the Union address he suggests that for the future we move from a gasoline powered fleet to a natural gas powered fleet. But, we are running out of time to reduce usage. That message is really the equivalent of saying that a dull stick in the eye is better than a sharp stick in the eye.
