Though solar power is an efficient and earth-friendly technology, there has been recent speculation on the business as a whole and how it can affect other companies. The question behind this grueling dilemma is what companies are affected by solar power, and are the affects something that will thwart solar power industries.
In many states, it is required by energy companies to obtain a certain percentage of their power from alternative energy sources such as windmills and solar power. Tucson Electric Power Company, for example, uses their Bright Solutions program to allow its users to purchase solar energy credits to offset their energy consumption in a more earth-friendly manner. However, in some states, this is not the case.
