The Big Question: What Can We Hope for in the Next 12 Months?

Thank you Tildy Bayer. This is "big question" and one that we tackled as well during the last Twitter #SolarChat hosted by SEIA: http://www.ecooutfitters.net/blog/2012/02/solarchat-recap-22212-what-to-expect-from-solar-in-2012/
A large crowd of very vocal, enthusiastic solar advocates from across the solar spectrum addressed issues such as; what are the biggest challenges in 2012, what is the critical policy for 2012, best methods of banning together to advance solar on a state level and much more. The discussion was overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Big challenges lie ahead but the opportunities are even larger!
