The plunging costs of solar systems and the broad availability of sunlight mean that rooftop systems are increasingly able to compete with electricity from the grid around the country. By comparing average local electricity costs with the projected average national price of an installed rooftop solar system, we can estimate the percentage of states that may have or may soon have competitive rooftop solar power.
