Taking a step towards going green, last year the state of Wississipi planned on giving interest free loans and free installations for households installing solar power generators. Many houses in Wississipi took advantage of this and a report claimed that up to 10% of households in the state were benefiting from the scheme. But at the end of the year the state saw an increase in the demand for electricity.
Which of the following, if true, does most to explain the result that followed the implementation of the scheme?

A- During an internal audit it was proved that the claims of the report was not entirely true and had been slightly modified.
B- Last year, the sunlight hours were comparatively fewer than the year before.
C- Most people were not committed towards going green and thus did not take advantage of the scheme.
D- Many people who benefited from the scheme wasted most of the energy they got from solar generators in unwanted uses they might have avoided if solar energy had not been available in the first place.
E- Many new manufacturing plants that use lot of electricity started their operations in Wississipi towards the end of last year.

The answer is E as this would provide the reason for increased demand of electricity
