EPIC Director Scott Anders presented a paper at the American Solar Energy Society's Solar 2006 Conference. The paper presented an estimate for the technical potential of rooftop solar in the San Diego region.
Anders co-authored the paper with an SDG&E transmission engineer Tom Bialek.
"While the potential for rooftop photovoltaics is enormous, the economic potential is much less than what we estimated in the paper," said Anders. "Recently approved incentive programs by both California and the federal government will be a major factor in determining how much of the potential is realized."
The paper was based on work Anders conducted for a project prior to joining EPIC.
