$9M grant to NC State may help make rooftop solar cheaper and easier

A grant to North Carolina State University and several partners could make installing rooftop solar energy systems much less expensive and time consuming. Researchers will use the five-year, $9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to design solar energy systems and installation and connection procedures that require little or no customization by homeowners and installers. The systems would set up quickly and connect to the power grid easily, while still meeting building and electrical codes.
