Could we have solar thermal in every home someday?

    In most cases, it’s a good idea, and cheap enough applications should not have trouble getting widespread. However, not every area would be worth installing any sort of solar thermal technology, as the insolation (available solar radiation) varies widely depending on a few conditions. One of the obvious once is the latitude, so solar power won’t make much sense in Alaska (and any other place too far north or south (southern hemisphere’s south). If you look on insolation maps, however, you’ll notice they don’t exactly follow latitude lines. That’s where factors like atmospheric haze and cloud cover take effect.
