    Solar biz is growing, because it makes good biz sense

    The solar power industry is expanding rapidly -- and for reasons of economics rather than subsidies. This trend can be illustrated by three observations.

    First, the installation rate reported for new solar panels -- among businesses as well as consumers -- is at record levels, and it is accelerating. Two-thirds of all solar photovoltaic capacity in place worldwide has been installed two and a half years, according to the Web site greentechsolar. And the industry is on track to double capacity in the next two and a half years. Media pundits have been invoking Moore's Law in discussing the growth of solar installations -- a not entirely accurate analogy, according to greentechsolar, but positive nonetheless.
