Chris Kettenman ’07 recently spoke with Yahoo Finance about his predictions of growth in the solar energy industry. Kettenmann, a primary alternative energy analyst at Miller Tabak, discussed the current expansion of the industry in both domestic and foreign markets. In 2011, with the aid of federal tax credits, the U.S. market for solar energy saw an increase of 100 percent. “With these tax credits still in place, I think there's still a meaningful appetite for solar in the U.S.” If industries continue to focus on innovation, Kettenmann believes solar parity could be reached as early as 2015.
