US market: sunny with chance of downpour
When will the United States solar boom happen? That has been the question on everyone's mind, from manufacturers to power producers and retailers. Figuring out the answer is tricky and you will get many answers, some that still carry many caveats.
The attendees at Solarpraxis's PV Power Plants 2010 conference in las Vegas in December explored that question in terms of project development, financing and policy.

NRG also agreed to buy a planned 290MW project from First Solar for an undisclosed amount.
