Still some experts had foreseen an extension and others made their prognostications known. The bottom line is expect a healthier industry going forward for the next few years-at least.

San Diegans Who Delay Going Solar Will Miss 20 Years of Grandfathering Protections
Claudia Assis for MarketWatch: Nevada has turned into a sunny battleground for the future of solar in the U.S., with regulators there moving to make solar power less attractive to homeowners and businesses and pitching utilities against solar-power companies.

The Solar Energy Industries Association estimates that nearly 6,000 people in Nevada are employed in the solar industry. Besides affecting jobs, the new rules cut down on the savings that many homeowners count on from going solar. Cont'd...
