U.S Hits Solar Pricing Goal 3 Years Ahead of Schedule

In early 2011 solar utility usage cost close to $4.00/watt. The DOE’s SunShot Initiative hoped to reduce the total costs of PV solar energy systems by about 75 percent so that they were cost-competitive with other forms of energy without subsidies before 2020. Now, with the advent of $1.00-per-watt (DC) pricing for utility fixed-tilt PV systems, the solar industry has crushed the SunShot Program’s $1.00-per-watt goal for 2020 three years early.

THIS is the infrastructure the U.S should focus on!
