Solar Energy Theft

Solar Energy Theft

But I’m not alone in perceiving an enormous cost reduction opportunity for solar in the United States. An article in Forbes last week suggested that we can “Cut The Price Of Solar In Half By Cutting Red Tape.” It provides a chart (reproduced below) like one I published in March, that shows how a similarly sized residential solar array in Germany costs 60% less than one built in the U.S. Solar Energy Theft – We Pay Double for Solar

Cheaper Solar

Cheaper Solar Break through could open the door on cheaper solar New research out of Berkeley Lab and the University of California suggests that it is possible to make solar cells from any semiconductor, opening the door to solar panels made from cheaper, more abundant materials. Until now, phosphides and sulfides of metals have been…
