Report: #Price of US solar PV systems #declines rapidly...

The annual PV cost-tracking report Tracking the Sun by Berkely Lab shows installed price of solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems in the United States fell substantially in 2012 and through the first half of 2013, Installed prices for PV systems in 2012 fell by a range of roughly $0.30/W to $0.90/W, or 6 to 14 percent, from the prior year, depending on the size of the system. “This marks the third year in a row of significant price reductions for PV systems in the U.S.,” explains Galen Barbose of Berkeley Lab’s Environmental Energy Technologies Division, one of the report’s co-authors. Within the first six months of 2013, PV system prices in California fell by an additional 10 to 15 percent, and the report suggests that PV system price reductions in 2013 are on pace to match or exceed those seen in recent years. The report indicates that the median installed price of PV sy...
