How would you characterize the current state of the PV Utility scale markets?

So, I think we’re at a very exciting point for the PV utility scale market. We are on the cusp of a transformation of the energy supply where new capacity additions will be mostly Solar, wind, gas and a bit of storage. So Solar, it’s really scaling up now especially in the utility scale, it’s cost competitive in a number of growing regions and there’s just going to be so much more build-out that what we’ve done in the past is going to pale in comparison to what is to come.
