Despite some ups and downs in 2014, some solar advocates say they are optimistic about the future of the industry in 2015.
Advocates such as Bret Fanshaw with Environment Arizona said he has seen far more growth in solar energy than he could have expected over the past few years and that includes 2014.
“Over the last three years Arizona (solar) grew on average at 142 percent per year in the state and so it’s really taking off,” he said.
Part of the industry’s boom is thanks to many of Arizona’s city governments jumping on board and opting to use clean energy.
