Despite a significant uptick in solar power investments in the U.S. in recent months, some states have been much more friendly to solar-power initiatives than others. While some states provide incentives like tax credits, rebates, and interconnection regulations, others do not. So, in an effort to differentiate, the helpful folks over at SolarPowerRocks have created a ranking of U.S. states in order of solar-power-friendliness (see below).
Surprisingly, California -- which usually leads the pack in many renewable energy issues -- came in only 12th, while Massachusetts, Maryland, and New York took top honors.
