8 million U.S. households have solar power systems.
In the last 10 years, homes with rooftop solar arrays have gone from curiosity to commonplace. The benefits of residential solar power are obvious: energy from the sun is endless (at least for the next 5 billion years); it provides clean energy with no greenhouse-gas emissions, and it can save people money on their electric bills.
According to IEA statistics up to 2018, more than 1.8 million U.S. households have their own solar power systems. This is up from just over 137,600 households in 2010, according to the Energy Information Administration. Usually, rooftop Solar Installations would have an ROI of 8 years through savings on electricity bills, according to a recent EnergySage report. Small-scale solar (or Virtual Power Plants) are still a tiny share of the U.S. electricity output with just 0.7 percent of the production in 2017, but the experts believe that trend would change in the coming years.
