Rooftop solar installations surge 66%

Homeowners who decided to install rooftop solar panels are some of the nation’s biggest new energy producers.

In fact, the residential rooftop solar industry broke multiple records in 2015, according to the US Solar Market Insight Report from GTM Research and the Solar Energy Industries Association. For the first time ever, Americans installed more than 2 gigawatts of rooftop solar last year. That represents a 66 percent increase over the number of rooftop solar installations in 2014.
