In the recent past, while a significant amount of discussions for US solar power have been on the residential and commercial rooftop solar growth, the real force for solar growth in the US in terms of quantum has been the utility-scale solar power plants. This post discusses the installation cost of utility scale solar power plant […]
The cost of solar power has been coming down dramatically in the past few years. You would have surely heard that. Within the solar sector, the cost of utility scale solar power have been falling even more significantly than the cost for distributed (mainly rooftop-based) solar power.
In the recent past, while a significant amount of discussions […]
A very large percentage of the lifetime costs of rooftop solar goes into its installation, as rooftop solar power systems have low operations and maintenance costs and zero fuel costs.
Solar has come a long way since early 1980s, when the installed costs averaged to more 30 dollars per Watt .This, we know, mainly was due […]
With cost of solar power fast decreasing in the US, millions of residential and commercial units in the US are interested to know the actual cost […]
A reduction in solar PV modules by about 65% since 2010 has resulted in an unprecedented growth in the solar energy industry worldwide. The top 10 countries with the highest solar generation capacity as of 2014 are listed as follows:
Installed Capacity (GW)
(IEA-PVPS Snapshot of Global PV Markets, 2014)
It should be noted that the above specified […]
