Listen Up: Rooftop #Solar Potential in the #US

We can. Such an elegant and environmentally sensitive solution. But there are many people who are either in denial of solar ’s ability to affordably power our economy, or have ulterior motives — usually these are people who have financial interests tied to the fossil fuel or utility industry. According to a recent report by the National Renewable Energy Lab, rooftop solar has the potential to power almost 40 percent of the country’s total electricity needs — using only the roofs of residential/commercial buildings. When you consider community solar and ground mount installations we can easily generate 100 percent of total U.S. electricity needs. Still not convinced? Listen Up to the Energy Show on Renewable Energy World for the highlights of NREL’s report entitled “Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic Technical Potential in the United States.”
