America is in the middle of a solar energy boom.  More than two-thirds of America’s residential and commercial distributed solar power has been installed since January 2011.  And by 2015, the country’s distributed PV market is expected to jump by more than 200 percent.  What is driving this exploding growth in solar energy?  What are the major trends in the residential and commercial spaces, and what are the economic incentives for business and home owners?  In a future with millions of distributed rooftop power generators, what are the operational and safety concerns that may arise?
