Phew. We made it, but Lord knows it felt like it was a close call, right? Or at least are about to, depending on when you’re reading this.
When the history of the solar industry in 2017 is written, it will read like a edge-of-your-seat thriller (think the 1962 The Manchurian Candidate meets Psycho meets Rear Window. Don’t be lazy; Google them – and then watch them).
Bankruptcies. Political intrigue. A bizarre quid pro quo. A close tax fight and a trade-case cliffhanger whose resolution is being breathlessly anticipated by everyone in the industry, and tea leaves are selling out everywhere.
It’s been a wild and crazy ride for us here at pv magazine as we established ourselves as solar’s leading news source. And as we finish our first full year, we find ourselves filled with eager anticipation and unbridled excitement as we look forward to bringing you all the news 2018 will bring – and we have no doubt 2018 will be no less thrilling and tumultuous as 2017 was.
So be it hereby resolved that we will continue to uphold the highest standards in bringing you the news you need to know, as it happens. We couldn’t do it without all your support, so thanks for reading – and as the clock strikes midnight, be ready for 2018 to start off with a bang for the solar industry. We’ll be there to bring it to you.
