Once again, the party of no-way, no-how, not-me defeatist mentality neglects the real challenges before us.
While the party-of-no obstructs & delays, China gobbles up market share from American companies.
Most of the top solar modules manufacturers in China had recovered as of the second half of 2009... Along with sales recovery, the Chinese may have grabbed more market share from their international competitors.While the party-of-no obstructs & delays, China extends its remarkable cost advantage over American companies.
In addition, the Chinese processing cost is 30 percent lower than that of their European counterparts, which is a "remarkable cost advantage."While the party-of-no obstructs & delays, China takes jobs from American companies & workers.
Due to this product cost gap, Chinese manufacturers are able to attract large-scale solar project developers, while their European and U.S. counterparts suffer losses in the price competition.While the party-of-no obstructs & delays, China marshalls its resources to dominate new energy technologies that Americans developed.
Another major advantage for Chinese solar companies is their ready access to finance amid the global economic downturn. Backed by China's preferential policies towards renewable energy, domestic solar modules makers have benefited from supportive local banks. Financial Crisis Paves the Way for Chinese Solar GiantsIf history has taught Americans anything, we can overcome any challenge "that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win."
“We choose to go to the moon in this decade ..., not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.” ~John F. Kennedy, Rice University, September 12, 1962
