High legal barriers in 10 states make it especially difficult to put solar panels on rooftops.

Julian Spector for CityLab:  A lot has been said already about the success of the states that are leading the adoption of solar energy. There’s plenty to celebrate, as solar installationssmash records and as the industry grows 12 times faster than the U.S. economy. At the same time, it’s important to recognize that many people live in places where the government is either not facilitating a solar market or is actively smothering it.

Solar obstructionism takes center stage in a report, aptly titled “Throwing Shade,” out Tuesday from Greer Ryan at the Center for Biological Diversity. The organization advocates for an energy system that’s clean, equitable, and wildlife friendly, so Ryan set out to rank the states based on how well their policies encourage rooftop solar panels. Then she analyzed the 10 worst-scoring states with the highest solar potential in order to better understand how the absence of state-level policies—or the presence of antagonistic ones—hampers the growth of solar markets.  Cont'd...

PVinsights: Polysilicon surges as the stricter control on polysilicon smugglings enforced

Polysilicon price surges notably as Chinese authorities imposed stricter control over imports by reviewing foreign polysilicon sources. The demand in China has intensified as Chinese wafer makers are utilizing production at full and expanding capacities intensively. Hence, with the enforcement underway, Chinese polysilicon suppliers could further hike the price as buyers are trying to secure enough polysilicon. As affected by the price rally in China, Taiwanese and Korean polysilicon makers take this advantage to increase their price significantly.
