The possibility of installing solar photovoltaics
(PV) distributed on rooftops has allowed
communities to actively participate
in molding the future of sustainable cities.
Solar PV owners also experience significant economic
benefits in the form of tax credits, rebates, and lower
net electricity consumption from utilities, leading to
lower electricity bills. It comes at no surprise that the
rooftop PV has surpassed 300 GW of installed capacity
worldwide, with trends on the rise.
In the United States, more than a million rooftops
already have solar PV systems on them, with the
numbers continuously expanding, contributing to the
achievement of bold initiatives to fully decarbonised
states’ power sectors, such as those in California, Hawaii
and New York.
