2008 Best and Recommended Practices from IREC’s State & Stakeholder Newslsetters

Is it just me, or was 2008 a breathtaking year for solar?

First, there was the roar of a solar boom in the U.S., thanks to rising energy prices, strong consumer demand, and financial incentives from the federal government, lots of states and utilities. Then, more than 130 people showed up at IREC’s Annual Meeting in October in San Diego (we were expecting less—a lot less—due to financial constraints from states and local governments). And finally, at year’s end, despite distressing economics, came the passage of the eight-year extension of the ITC.

Still, despite the economic unease, a surfeit of tools and resources were produced that describe the experience and a path to success, even in this Age of Anxiety. Here’s the complete list of 2008 Best and Recommended Practices.
