Key marketing figures showed increase usage of solar power:

The last figure means that in the first quarter of 2014, nearly ¾ of all new power installations were solar powered. Even more noteworthy, residential installations exceeded non-residential installations, meaning homeowners are understanding the benefits of zeroing out their energy bill by using the power of the sun.

There are some states that offer incentives for residential solar installations, but this first quarter of 2014 showed that homeowners are installing solar whether there are incentives available or not.

By the end of this first quarter alone, there have been almost half a million individual solar power systems installed.

They are now up and running, and generating clean energy for residential and commercial usage.
