Big Island Solar Permits Decline in 2016

According to data compiled by Marco Mangelsdorf, the number of rooftop solar permits on Hawaii island decreased 56 percent compared to 2015. Data shows Maui County (Maui, Molokai and Lanai) suffered a 47 percent decline. Is a similar drop expected on Oahu and Kauai?

Mina Morita and Jay Fidell discuss how Hawaii’s four counties can utilize both grid-supply and self-supply to stabilize the PV solar industry.
