When I first wrote about Solar Mosaic, a startup that's been building a kind of Kickstarter around funding solar roofs, I was excited about their idea of leveraging crowd-funding to offset the large costs of solar rooftop installations. But the company is only just about to launch the truly disruptive part of its business: as early as this Summer Solar Mosaic plans to start offering people a way to buy into rooftop solar panel projects, and make back a return on their investment over time.

Is solar the perfect application for crowd-funding? Great story.
