The solar revolution is taking off across the world, but the fastest growth seems to be happening on the rooftops of India. 

Last year, India added more rooftop solar capacity than in the previous four years combined. That makes solar the fastest-growing area of the country’s clean energy market. According to a report from Bloomberg New Energy Finance, the country added 715 megawatts of solar power to the system, up from just 2227 the year before. Now, the country is running 1.3 gigawatts of solar energy and is estimated to reach 9.5 GW by 2022.
