In view of the perceived depletion of energy sources from fossil fuels, this project undertook a comprehensive evaluation of various alternative energy technologies. Special emphasis was placed on the potential of solar energy and its future development. In particular, we determined when and under what circumstances it will be economically feasible to install solar arrays on a house in Worcester, MA as the primary source of electrical energy.
