U.S. Solar Policy Impact Analysis

Posted by Aparna Darisipudi - On May 20, 2010 (EST)

The Solar Energy Industries Association
released an independent study projecting the positive economic impact of the U.S. Department of Treasury Grant Program
and the Solar Manufacturing Investment Tax Credit. The study found that extending the TGP by two years and including solar manufacturing in the industry’s existing tax credit would add 200,000 new domestic jobs to the solar workforce and supporting industries in the U.S. Additionally, it would result in 10 gigawatts (GW) of new solar
installations by 2016 -- enough to power 2 million homes.
