A solar panel on every roof in the US? Here are the numbers | Ars Technica
Estimate shows rooftop solar could produce almost 40 percent of our electricity.
When you’re scoping out possible futures, it’s useful to ask a lot of “what if?” questions. For example, what if we could install solar panels on every suitable roof in the United States? How much electricity would they generate?
Plenty of research has followed this line of thought, though much of it has necessarily focused on working out the details for individual cities or regions. But now with enough of these studies in the bank, a group of researchers from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory decided to take another whack at a national estimate.

Residential solar is cheap, but can it get cheaper? Paths to $0.05 per kWh | Ars Technica
NREL releases a paper similar to Tesla's stated solar roof business plan.
The price of solar panels has fallen far and fast. But the Energy Department (DOE) wants to bring those costs down even further, especially for residential homes. After all, studies have shown that if every inch of useable rooftop in the US had solar panels on it, the panels could provide about 40% of the nation's power demand. Right now, the DOE's goal is residential solar that costs 5¢ per kilowatt hour by 2030.
In a new report from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), researchers mapped out some possible pathways to that goal. Notably, the biggest barriers to cost reduction appear to be the stubborn "soft costs" of solar installation. Those soft costs include supply chain costs, labor costs, and sales and marketing costs that aren't related to the physical production of solar cells at a factory.

Are new regulations killing Vermont's solar success story?
Renewable energy advocates say politicians in Montpelier and Washington are hurting the solar industry. Utilities, meanwhile, say the policy changes in Vermont are good for ratepayers.

Solar Projects In Connecticut Face Local Pushback | Connecticut Public Radio
New England’s controversial “Northern Pass” energy project is on hold. The nearly 200-mile-long transmission line would have brought in hydropower from Canada, but recently got blocked by regulators in New Hampshire.
