Even in tough economic times, solar power in the United States is moving forward at a comfortably upward pace. For instance, First Solar Inc. has been showing signs of robustness by absorbing several projects from a rival company. According to the company, the move was done so that it would be able to spearhead production in several areas in Arizona.
Is this effort enough to turn around the energy crisis? Unfortunately, no. The smaller energy industries that are taking risks by developing alternative energy sources are being very cautious. The industries have none of the wildcat energy that paved the way for the worldwide use of crude oil. At this pace, usable alternative energy on a global scale would take decades to emerge.
