Get Ready, Utilities: Solar is Coming

See on Scoop.itGreen Building Design – Architecture & Engineering

Quick question.  Your state has good sunshine, lots of open rooftops, and the cost of solar energy has been falling by 10% per year.  Do you think it will take 13 years to double the 10 megawatts (MW) of installed solar power?

Duane Tilden‘s insight:

"…in a new report from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR), Commercial Rooftop Revolution … By 2016, over 100,000 MW of unsubsidized rooftop solar will able to match grid electricity on price.  Within 10 years, it will be 300,000 MW, enough to provide 10% of the nation’s electricity.  This affordable solar future presents a stark challenge to traditional utility planning and a clarion call for better electricity policy."
