Panel Session “Lighting Africa”

May 19, 2010

“When asked if I am pessimistic or optimistic about the future, my answer is always the same: If you look at the science about what is happening on earth and aren’t pessimistic, you don’t understand the data. But if you meet the people who are working to restore this earth, and you aren’t optimistic, you haven’t got a pulse… Inspiration resides in humanity’s willingness to restore, reform, rebuild, recover, re-imagine, reconsider… ”

Price trends in solar modules

Price Trends in Solar Modules

440 solar module prices less than $4.00/Wp (31.5% of total)

Lowest retail price for multi-crystalline silicon $1.74/Wp.

Lowest retail price for a mono-crystalline silicon $2.07/Wp.

Lowest thin film price $1.50/Wp

Not all models equal… brand, attributes and certifications matter.
