With the expiring cash grants for renewable energy I have seen a few articles and posts that claim renewable energy is going to die or is dead. Warren Buffett’s purchase of Topaz Solar Farm proves that renewable energy and especially solar is far from dead. With investors like Buffett jumping into solar I think it means the industry has reached a certain maturation point. It shows that solar makes economic sense especially when the Topaz project was accomplished without a DOE loan guarantee. Now that Buffett is in the renewable field I think we will see a whole new push by other investors.
