As qerqwe points out, solar just isn't economical yet. But, if we got a few more breakthroughs, it may be in the not too-distant future.

I live in Phoenix where the sun shines all the time and I see all these rooftops. Very Very few with any sort of solar panels. WHY? It easy, there is no pay back. IE. SOLAR IS NOT YET ECONOMICAL. But... it is getting better.
