    General Notes: A "#" symbol indicates that the value is not meaningful due to a large relative standard of error. "Distributed solar energy" or "Distributed Photovoltaic" includes all solar powered electricity generation (including photovoltaic and thermal). That is, electricity that is produced at or near the point where it is used. Distributed solar energy can be located on rooftops or ground-mounted, and is typically connected to the local utility distribution grid. States, cities and towns are experimenting with policies to encourage distributed solar to offset peak electricity demand and stabilize the local grid.
