Tracking the Sun VI: An Historical Summary of the Installed Price of Photovoltaics in the United States from 1998 to 2012. According to the report, the installed price of solar photovoltaic (PV) power systems in the United States fell substantially in 2012 and through the first half of 2013. The analysis is based on project-level data for more than 200,000 individual residential, commercial, and utility-scale PV systems, representing 72% of the grid-connected PV capacity installed nationwide through 2012.

Overcoming Solar Roadblocks: There’s a Map for That

Optony, through the Southwest Solar Transformation Initiative, successfully launched its Solar Roadmap with support from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Rooftop Solar Challenge. This customizable, interactive Web platform, which shows the real-time status of the solar market in more than 70 participating jurisdictions, makes it easier and more cost effective for residents to obtain clean, locally produced power with solar energy installations.
