Conclusions of a Green Biker

“The market for solar photovoltaic systems is increasing as the cost of installation goes down. In an effort to stimulate growth, Slovenia has set aside 70 million Euros for a feed-in tariff to help consumers pay for these systems. The country has a goal of establishing 300 megawatts of solar power by 2020.

“Iowa clearly needs to pursue this type of technology. We need to develop state policy to support this growing industry, addressing consumer demand, workforce skill development and financing incentives.”
