The U.S. solar power market grew a substantial 67% in 2010. Solar market share leapt to $6 billion in 2010, up from $3.6 billion in 2009. These gains were aided by federal tax credits and reduction in technology costs.
President Obama has aggressively supported renewable energy sources with Congress extending the federal tax credits through 2011, which originally set to expire at the end of 2010. The exploding industry growth supports the solar industry's goal of powering 2 million homes a year by 2015.
