Catalyzing Commercialization
As the worldwide price of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy decreases, a growing amount of consumers are adopting PV technologies. In 2016, the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for domestic utility-scale solar power reached $0.07/kWh, which is competitive with the cost of coal-generated power. However, the current cost of residential solar power remains at $0.18/kWh, which has prevented broader adoption of solar power.
