Where will solar pricing be in 2017?

The price of solar panels is expected to fall another 28 per cent between the fourth quarter of 2012 and the start of 2017, according to new forecasts.

The cost of photovoltaic solar panels is expected to drop to 36 cents per watt by 2017, according to new research by clean tech market research firm GTM Research.

While this drop in solar panel prices will help to make solar affordable to more people, which will increase the size of the solar market, this ongoing cost reduction means much more than that.
