Alternative Photovoltaic Systems for the Houses of the Future

Renewable energy recently got an unprecedented boost. On May 9, the California Energy Commission (CEC) voted unanimously to require all new homes to be solar-powered. Effective Jan. 1, 2020, the mandate will necessitate the provision of photovoltaic systems that provide 2 to 3 kilowatts of energy, depending on house size. This requirement’s modest size, about one-third to half that of a typical solar array, is presumably intended to control costs.
