Everyone knows that solar power hasn’t become mainstream. Still, with all the talk of renewable energy and global warming, it’s a little shocking how _really_ not mainstream it’s been: as recently as 2006, there were only 30,000 homes with solar panels. But solar may finally be “crossing the chasm” from a technology perspective. In the next few months, we’ll surpass 1,000,000 homes with solar power. Are you one of them? If not, you may want to look into the tax advantages, too.
