Sunny side up? Analyzing the effectiveness of policy support for solar energy on a state level

by Poneman, Michael

Abstract

Solar energy is a growing player in the electricity generation industry, second just to natural gas in new electricity generation over the past two years. Policy support is crucial to the success of all energy sources, and solar is no different. This paper uses several Fixed Effects models to analyze the effectiveness of state-issued policy and incentive programs aimed to assist in the generation of solar energy. Comparing the results of the different models reveals trends in policy effectiveness that may warrant policy shifts in many states.
