Rooftop Revolution Changing Everything with Cost-Effective Local Solar

Today solar energy provides less than 1% of our nation’s electricity. Yet already over 300,000 homes boast a solar array. With
the cost of solar power plunging and retail electric prices rising,
in the next ten years 100 million Americans may be able to “go
solar” for a lower price than grid electricity. We need to plan for
this transition now, eliminating barriers to the rapid growth of
solar energy and changing the inflexible and inefficient tax subsidy for solar into a more flexible, transitional feed-in tariff. We
need to stop investing in centralized power and long distance
high voltage transmission lines and instead invest in new electricity infrastructure more compatible with decentralized power.
