Everyone is looking for a way to save on energy, and a cleaner source. Solar Panels have been pushed for years, and we might finally be on the right track with them.

According to CNN, it was a record year for installing solar power stations, and panels in the United States. This of course despite a few of the bigger companies filing for bankruptcy.

Locally, Fairhaven continues its quest for clean energy by moving forward on a solar panel project. Fairhaven is already making strides with clean energy with the installation of wind turbines.

Do you think you can afford solar energy? The price of solar panels is down nearly 60% since 2011. This is because of a drop on price in silicone, and heavy investment in the companies that produce it. Solar energy companies are also growing, and employs 119,000 people within it's ranks.
