With significant variance in estimates of cost and price within the solar market, DOE's Sunshot Initiative with scientists from National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Lawrence Berkley National Labs, have released their report that seeks
Utilities have taken on the practice of applying standby and fixed cost charges specific to solar PV for customers choosing to go solar as a means to recover costs resulting from net energy metering (NEM).
While PV modules and other hardware costs have dropped significantly over recent years, non-hardware soft costs have also fallen, but not nearly as sharply.
Rhone Resch, president and CEO of the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), released the following statement today after reviewing the Department of Energy’s new report, “2014: The Year of Concentrating Solar Power,” which profiles five utility-scale concentrating solar power (CSP) plants and calls 2014 a “significant milestone in the history of American solar energy.”
