The Solar Digest is a blog that informs people about solar energy and solar panel installations. Our mission is to inform and educate consumers about harvesting solar energy with solar panel installations. We discuss a variety of related topics including how to install solar panels, cost related to installations, and everything else related to solar energy. Our year-end wrap-up discusses a sampling of the biggest solar energy trends, in the United States and worldwide, over the past year. Change is happening, and it’s happening fast. The year 2017 has seen major advances in the public’s understanding of solar energy advantages. And it’s seen steady commercial progress. Residential solar power has not only grown; it has become completely normal, even desirable, in cities, suburbs, and beyond.
