One of the questions that I had when I launched the Mountain View Solar Buyers Group was: what will happen for demand for solar after the discount ends?
The discount was available to residents from Feb. 10 - April 30, 2007. During that time about 367 kW of solar was purchased from SolarCity (who I have worked for since June 5, 2007). I recently ran a report, and was pleased to find that from May 1 - Sept. 10, an additional 133 kW has been purchased from SolarCity by Mountain View residents and businesses.
At the same time, sales by other solar companies has been running ahead of last year's pace. Though SolarCity has the lion's share of the Mountain View market, other vendors are doing MORE business here in 2007 than last year.
