    >scarcer, ordinary citizens and businesses are bypassing the federal
    >government to lead the way in exploring a clean, renewable source of
    >power: the sun. In this report, NOVA shines a light on how and why
    >people across America and the world are "going solar," using radiant
    >energy of the sun to power homes, businesses, and even entire
    >communities. But can everyday people really make a difference by
    >using solar power? And can solar technologies, with their high cost
    >and logistical challenges, truly play a bigger role in powering the
    >future of humanity? The grand hopes, latest innovations, roiling
    >controversies, and practical realities of solar power all come to the
