2/3rds Of All Solar PV Installed In Last 2 Years —
Policy Support And Competitive Pricing Driving This Growth

Dear GENI Friend,

Momentum – mass in motion that gains speed and becomes an unstoppable force.

Solar and wind development has gained such momentum that the industry is doubling every 2 years.  In the United States, solar and wind projects were half of all new generation capacity in 2012.  Global investment in 2012 was $248 billion and economists project this to double by 2022.

Global photovoltaic (PV) module prices have fallen 62% since January 2011, and the solar industry is on track to install another 100 gigawatts worldwide by 2015 -- nearly doubling solar capacity in the next 2.5 years.

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory expects the price of solar will be competitive with gas in a decade

The Worldwatch Institute highlights the policies – especially the Feed in Tariff – that provide support to this growth trend.

We are now seeing dramatic impacts from our fossil fuel addiction of the last century: stronger storms, increased flooding, devastating droughts.  The solution is here now – build renewables everywhere, build them at record speed, and interconnect them to optimize efficiency and economy.  Please join us in this effort.

In partnership for the planet,
