With even mainstream home builders offering solar options, and some tantalizing hints that solar could be as cheap as coal by 2015, interest in solar for homeowners looks set to rise in coming years. But what about renters, or those who live in the woods? Now there's also an increasing interest in "solar gardens" that allow energy users to invest in solar on someone else's property and still reap the economic rewards. In fact, this may even make sense for folks who could put solar on their own roof if they wanted to.
