California Rated the Top State for Rooftop Solar

California provides the perfect combination of incentives and environmental conditions to make it the best state for going solar.

NerdWallet, a financial advice blog, recently reported on a study about the solar industry and market in all 50 states to determine which ones provided the best conditions for homeowners who want to install solar panels on their rooftops. There are a number of factors that guide someone’s decision to go solar, and while other states may provide certain advantages such as more sunlight or better tax incentives, it’s important to aggregate all of these measures to determine which one produces the ideal conditions for a photovoltaic (PV) installation.

NerdWallet used four main criteria in determining the best state for solar power:

Based on scoring for all four of these measures, California leads the way with its favorable regulatory, tax and natural environment that combine to create ideal conditions for any customers who are planning on going solar.
