Health, environmental improvements found to far exceed impact in warm, sunnier regions.  For years, solar-energy advocates have complained that critics of the technology and its higher costs ignore the environmental and health benefits the arrays produce by replacing “dirty” power from more traditional generating units.

Now, a recent study backs that up, purporting to show that some states — particularly in the Mid-Atlantic region, including New Jersey — reap far more benefits from solar-linked reductions in air pollution generated by conventional fossil fuel power plant, even though the solar panels in the East produce far less electricity than in sunbaked states like Arizona.
