Solarbuzz says solar installations hit an all time record in 2007
Solarbuzz reported last month that the world solar power market grew 62% in 2007. Germany represents for 47% of the world market for solar power. Spain in second place market increase was significant, over 480%!! The USA trailed in forth place at a 57% growth rate following Japan. The solar power industry in 2007 generated a global revenue stream of $17.2 Billion!
The data by Solarbuzz is important for consumers to see the robust growth in the solar industry which proves the technology behind solar power is real, improving and can really help consumers across the globe reduce their bottom lines through solar power technology. If the USA had more federal government support for solar power and renewable energy in general, we could not only create millions of new jobs and innovate ourselves off foreign oil but we could invigorate our economy.
