Dalhousie University Senior Thesis


The paper does not spring directly from M&O business but reflects M&O's support of photovoltaic solar panels.  It investigated variables that contribute to differing levels of solar panel adoption across country borders.


The paper is a fascinating look into worldwide efforts to make photovoltaic solar a viable option and shows that particularly Germany has made significant inroads.  The paper does not analyze the United States on a state-by-state basis but, remarkably, more recent data is indicating that.....wait for it.....New Jersey leads the charge in PV solar adoption in the United States.
