John,

Around here in north NJ, they are still going strong. I still get to inspect 1 or 2 every month.

Harold:
I have 10 (ten) at one of the industrial parks. They expect to have panels on every building by the end of '13.

Most are under 1 MW range.

Resi is going strong; average five (5) plus each week.

I was/am wondering how the Ecs here are doing!

There's a small market here for small remote off grid systems. We have cheap hydro electricity. Hard to compete with this

Florida slowed way down when the state ran out of rebate money.

The good news is solar PV is getting close to the "buck a watt" price that makes it attractive. The bad news is they don't make it here.
