Kae Shummoogum showed off his wind and solar powered home near Calgary with 17 solar panels on the roof and thermal solar panel on the side.

Kae Shummoogum opened his home on Saturday to curious visitors wanting to learn more about why his is the only home in the Calgary area to be powered by wind.

Although, Shummoogum readily says that is just a small part of the entire power his home generates from ecologically friendly sources.

Hawaii leads the country with nearly 20 solar customers per 100 households, followed by California and Arizona.

Home solar power usage has boomed in the U.S. in the past decade, but most of that growth has come from just two states.

The number of homeowners and businesses that linked up solar panels to utility grids has grown more than tenfold since 2012, rising from nearly 234,000 customers to about 3.2 million this year. Arizona and California account for half of those customers, according to an analysis of data from the U.S. Energy Information Agency, or EIA.

When the numbers are adjusted for population, Hawaii leads the country with nearly 20 solar customers per 100 households, followed by California and Arizona.
