A new poll from the Consumer Federation of America (CFA) shows that green gas-powered energy is on the rise, with more than a quarter of respondents in the U.S. indicating that they would install a solar array at their home.
This is an upswing from last year, when only 23 percent of Americans said they would have a solar panel installed at home.
A full 50 percent of respondents said they planned to install solar panels on their homes.
The findings are a positive sign for green energy as the industry is on pace to have more than 1 million new solar installations this year, according to the CFA.
This year alone, the industry expects to install more than 4.6 million solar panels.
The CFA found that just 19 percent of those surveyed would consider installing solar panels in their homes this year.
This figure is lower than the percentage of Americans who said they were considering installing solar, at 15 percent.
The number of Americans that are currently considering installing a solar system has been declining since 2015.
Last year, 36 percent of people said they considered installing solar.
The survey, conducted online and in person in the last week of January, also found that 58 percent of American consumers said they are looking to invest in a home solar array, with 33 percent saying they were already invested in a solar installation.
The average purchase price for a home with a solar module is about $2,500, and a solar installer typically requires about $25,000 to install.
As solar is expected to become more widely available in the future, the CFCA has been working with companies to promote solar installations in homes.
This month, the group launched the Solar Choice Campaign, which will be an ongoing initiative that encourages solar installers to sell the panels to customers.
Solar Choice is one of the most popular and effective ways to promote the solar industry.
The U.K. has the highest number of households using a solar-powered system at over two-thirds, followed by Germany (62 percent), France (62.5 percent), Germany (58.5%) and the U and Japan (59.5%).
The average installation cost in these countries is around $1,200.
The number of people who said solar energy was important in their household has also been on the upswing.
In 2015, less than a third of Americans thought solar was important to their household.
In 2016, that number rose to more than half of those who said it was.
This number has since continued to increase, with the majority of households now saying they are investing in solar, up from around 20 percent in 2015.
