A local company in my area is saying now projects won't be made because the panels costs too much. The problem with the US industry is that it is based on home installation. PV panels on homes is the least efficient way to increase solar output. Also there is a high chance you won't really recoup the investment you make even with the tax credit. I know a guy with a 40k system he paid up front. He still gets an electric bill.

Even with an 80% cut in PV panel costs why hasn't solar adoption increase all that much? The cost to set up a home system is virtually the same as it ever was 20 to 40k.

So boo hoo, they won't be buying crap solar cells from companies in China that use their land and water as open sewers to "save the earth" here in the US.
