MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The United States installed more solar energy than any other source of electricity in the first quarter of this year.
And it’s becoming increasingly popular here in Florida, where there’s no shortage of rays.
“This is the sunshine state,” says Carol Lopez-Bethel, a wine consultant who lives in Coconut Grove.
Lopez-Bethel says, for her, going solar was a no brainer.
Three years after installing solar panels on the roof of her 1950’s era Grove home, the sun powers her refrigerator, her washer/dryer, her air conditioning and more.
