Good News for Solar?

The Wall Street Journal reports (subscription may be required) that the installation of solar panel systems in booming.  While the report notes this is good news to solar installation contractors, the news is not so good for domestic manufacturers of solar panels.  The report notes that the growth in installation has been fueled foreign made panels which make the installation cheaper and, therefore, competitive with other forms of energy.  Growth is forecast to “slow” to 40% a year through 2016, which is still a gaudy number for the construction industry.
