Solar Ink … Solar Panel Deep Dive … 10 Terawatts of Solar … (Top 20 CleanTechnica Stories of the Week)

April 24th, 2017 by  

The top CleanTechnica stories of the week brought a surprise this week — there were no Tesla stories in the top 3! I don’t remember the last time that happened. 😛

Furthermore, solar power swept the top 4! With the quickly growing consumer EV market, it’s been a long time since solar dominated the top of the rankings. I was hit with a bit of a flashback looking at the numbers this week. 😀
