The US government underestimated solar energy installation in the US by 4,813%
Not surprising since they can't even balance the budget.
You let it be known that if you don't conform the government will "tax" you out of business....
And now that we know the growth in solar energy was grossly underestimated, is Trump revising his push to invest in coal rather than solar? I doubt it. And what country is taking the lead in solar energy technology and implementations?

Better brush up on your Mandarin.
I speak Mandarin...not great, but well enough to get by in social situations and in the course of going about daily life -- shopping, taking taxis, meeting people in bars and other social settings -- but not well enough to do business in Mandarin.
I just called an acquaintance with whom I've not spoken in a couple years. A Spanish speaking person answered the phone (apparently one whose English isn't strong enough to say "I think you've dialed the wrong number"). Though I speak somewhat decent Spanish, my first instinct was to respond to her in Mandarin, which is what I did initially -- I'm blaming you for my having done that. LOL (just kidding) -- and then I caught myself and switched to Spanish.
I have no idea why I did that....Perhaps it's an "artifact," if you will, from my experiences at myriad social events whereat I've found myself conversing with several people who are not all native speakers of English. Often in such conversations the speakers, myself included, will switch among various languages -- usually to utter interjections, idiomatic colloquialisms, and/or transitional phrases -- over the course of the discussion. That happens quite often at events I attend in NYC, D.C., London, Singapore and Tokyo.
What does your links have anything to do with it?
Which has what to do with the underestimation of the solar energy installation.
and yet its still a minor source of energy......an even bigger fail
