More to desire from DSIRE

DSIRE or, the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy provides a wealth of information for home and business owners. However, we figured it’d be a good idea to compile practical case-studies on a state by state basis utilizing each state’s incentives for both individual homeowners and business owners. Hopefully this guide will be a useful reference for all and show in a very practical way how solar power can be financed in each state. Additionally, we will furnish a solar legislation rating for each state:

– Excellent! Those are some progressive thinking bigwigs!

– Pretty darn good.

– Not bad, but some more work can be done at the capital.

– Poor. There are some problems getting solar bills through congress.

– Pathetic. New legislators need to be elected.

    The three of us live in Arkansas and…well look out of your nearest window, that daylite you now see will take 40 years to get to Arkansas as everything takes 40 years to get to Arkansas. We still had multi-party phone lines 15 years ago! This is the friendliest place there is, but I sure wish we could get out of the stone age in Arkansas. This state has been run by a political party for 150 years that claims to stand for change, yet we are the the last state to see improvements?

    I am in Tuscaloosa AL.
    My question is:
    If I (certify eclectic company) install (of course all electrical codes will be follow) solar panels and will do back feeding into the grid Alabama Power has to swallow that? If yes or no please advice me.

    grants are our weakest area of solar incentive knowledge. We are hoping to update our site soon with more of that, but for now, google google google.
