With relatively cheap land, tax incentives and abundant sunshine, North Carolina has been experiencing a boom in the solar industry. The state is fourth in the nation for installed solar capacity, and the 592MW currently installed across the state provides enough energy to power 64,500 homes (Solar Energy Industries Association). With over 300 MW of installed solar, Strata Solar ranks as one of the top providers in America.

In this podcast, John Morrison, senior vice president of public affairs at Strata Solar, discusses why solar development in North Carolina is succeeding, as well as the role universities play in providing the work force necessary for this growing industry of more than 137 solar companies employing 3,100 workers.
