This is an example of what decisions encouraged the recession in the USA. Buying products (Photovoltaics from Canadian Solar Inc.) from outside of this country. Maybe the monetary cost was lower, but the economic value for This country is greater than the slight difference of monetary cost. When MA. bought product that its own state businesses produce from outside this state and country, that contributed to shutting down said Photovoltaic Production Plants in the state of MA. When businesses purchase products outside of this country that this country produces, they are promoting the current or any recession. USA businesses that have USA citizens for clients, can't afford to purchase foreign products, because essentially you are putting your clients out of work which will eventually put their own businesses out of business.

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
