...AND CHEAPER...:

ROOFTOP SOLAR PANELS COULD POWER NEARLY 40 PERCENT OF THE U.S. (Mary Beth Griggs, 4/01/16, Popular Science)

The Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) issued a report last week that analyzed the ability of America's roofs to host solar panels. They looked at rooftops in 128 cities across the country, analyzing buildings large and small for their suitability for hosting photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, and how much power could be generated in each location. The estimates varied by state and by region, but overall, the report found that 39 percent of the country's energy could be generated by rooftop solar panels.
