While installing a home solar system on your roof is the main way to go solar today, there are at least nine more affordable ways that you can take advantage of solar energy.
In this informative infographic created by the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI), a well-respected renewable energy “think-and-do tank,” RMI lays out 10 ways to add solar technology to your home and also outlines the average years to payback.
