New Hampshire doubled the cap from 50mw to 100mw and the cap is about to be reached; one day people will realize that society wants MORE solar. And North Korea loves itself some off-grid solar, or ungrid solar, since they don’t really have a grid or electronics or freedom.

They will pay a one-time $90million departure fee and will go find its own power.
