  1. Cities & Solar: Cutting Costs Through Innovations at the Local Level

  2. 1960’s Moon Shot America’s Response JFK’s Challenge

  3. “We’re telling America’s scientists and engineers that if they assemble teams of the best minds in their fields, and focus on the hardest problems in clean energy, we’ll fund the Apollo projects of our time.”- President Obama 2011 State of the Union

  4. SunShot isthe Apollo Mission of Our Time

  5. What is SunShot targeting? Price SunShot Initiative SunShot Initiative ~ 6¢/kWh without subsidy 75% cost reduction by the end of the decade

  6. Panel Prices Plummeted • Source: Mints, P. (2011). Photovoltaic Manufacturer Shipments, Capacity, & Competitive Analysis 20010/2011. Report # NPS-Supply6. Palo Alto, CA: Navigant Consulting Photovoltaic Service Program. 2009/Real $/W

  7. “Even if you paid nothing for the hardware, you'd still pay thousands of dollars to install a residential solar power system.” - Secretary Chu However…

  8. What is SunShot targeting? “Soft Costs” Up to 40% of the cost of a solar installation =

  9. SunShot targets “soft costs” by:

  10. Focus on permitting • 50 states with different rules • 5,000+ utilities with various interconnection standards • 18,000+ local jurisdictions affecting PV permitting Oceanside, CA La Mirada, CA WI CA ≠ ≠

  11. A Sample Permitting Procedure Install Complies with Zoning Rules Special Building Type? Apply to Commission A Yes Receive Commission A Approval

  12. Utility Track

  13. Solar to be utility connected? Apply Electronically for Interconnection Yes Utility - Application Apply via mail for Interconnection Yes Utility Report Auto-Generated Person Creates Utility Report Report Sent to Appropriate Area No > 30 kW? AuthorizationLetter Equipment Spec Sheets 3-Line Diagram Contract Type 1 Yes Yes Application Type 3 Application Fee Application Type 2

  14. Approve Initial Design within 10 Days Engineer Review Check Utility Report

  15. State Energy Off. - Approval Submit 25% Payment Request to State Energy Office Receive 25% Payment
