Rooftop solar PV panels are mounted over rooftops of residential or commercial buildings. These panels have off-grid and on-grid electricity generation capability. Rooftop solar PV systems provide effective tool for capturing solar radiation for generating electricity in an emission-free, environment-friendly manner. Rooftop solar PV technology has existed since a long time but has recently witnessed adoption on a large scale with the advent of FITs and net metering policies. Rooftop solar PV systems consist of two parts: solar PV panels and balance of system. Solar panels are made of silicon wafer and are of two types: monocrystalline and polycrystalline. A balance of system usually consists of transformers, electricity systems, and monitoring and mounting equipment along with mounting and installing modules. Rooftop solar PV systems are increasingly being utilized due to their off-grid and on-grid flexibility. Demand for clean and renewable source of energy reaching an all-time high has contributed to the development and growth of the rooftop solar PV market. Rooftop solar PV is an efficient method for generating electricity from solar radiation without using fossil fuels. The market for rooftop solar PV has been rapidly increasing with the support of government subsidies and tax credits. The rooftop solar PV market have attracted large number of equity investments and funding. Many rooftop solar PV companies have launched IPOs through their new-formed YieldCos. Increasing rooftop solar PV market is considered critical for reducing carbon footprint.
