The paper reports recent results from an EPA program to demonstrate the capability of grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) systems as a pollution mitigating energy replacement for fossil fuels. The approach has been to install and monitor PV systems located on building (residential, commercial, and military) rooftops across the U.S. The economic viability of the PV systems is enhanced because they compete with the retail price of electric power rather than the utility avoided cost price.
