Los Gatos, California [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Akeena Solar, Inc. has opened a new office in Manteca, California, its third this year. Akeena now has five offices serving California and one in the Northeast. The California Solar Initiative makes solar power systems an attractive option for commercial and residential buildings, thus making California the largest solar power market in the United States. Support for solar power continues to grow as Americans are becoming more concerned about their sources of energy and more aware of environmentally friendly alternatives. Pending federal legislation is likely to drive further growth. The proposed Securing America’s Energy Independence Act proposes increasing Federal tax credits to $3,000 per kilowatt.
