Silver Lining for Solar

There is a report in USA Today that prices for roof top solar PV systems in CA could drop 50% in cost. The drop comes from a combination of falling prices due to weaker demand for raw materials and for solar in Europe, plus new tax breaks from the Obama plan. So if you have the cash and want to go solar, 2009 might be the year to take the plunge.

Looking at the longer term, recent break throughs in polymer solar cell technology could reduce prices more. Read about self-assembled solar cells and increases in polymer cell efficiency.
