With the wind mill companies unable to expand production fast enough to fill demand, and the solar companies sold out a couple of years ahead, building 1/2 Giga-watt manufacturing plants at an amazing clip, perhaps they are satisfied that that sector is doing well enough.

If that is all true (which I highly doubt) then very good for them. The local solar company here is barely ekeing out a living however.

Perhaps you need to import some educated people to Nevada to attract investment.

Will Oregon Become A Leader In Solar Power?

These companies have caught the scent of a monumental market opportunity. Solar industry experts say the United States is poised to become the world’s largest market for photovoltaic panels. That prediction is backed up by a stack of federal, state and local incentives to encourage Americans to install solar panels on their rooftops, and by the growing list of states, including Oregon, requiring utilities to obtain a certain percentage of their power from renewable energy sources, such as solar.

Producers are following the market, said Shyam Mehta, senior analyst at GTM Research, an affiliate of Greentech Media, an online media company based in Cambridge, Mass.

“With stimulus funds and massive utility deployment expected to drive 1.6 gigawatts in U.S. demand by 2012, domestic, Chinese and European companies are making major investments in solar factories over the next five years, particularly in panel manufacturing,” he said.
“More (U.S.) plants were announced in the first half of 2009 than in the previous three years combined,” Mehta said.

With its skilled work force, network of suppliers, access to university researchers, and generous subsidies, Oregon exudes a powerful allure for these companies.
