The installation pace of renewable energy generated by photovoltaic (PV) solar power has rapidly accelerated and that’s not surprising. Not only is solar electricity good for the environment, its installation costs are dropping rapidly. Now solar’s total generation costs in some parts of the world are almost as low as traditional dirty electricity sources, even without accounting for solar’s lower-pollution economic benefits. Additionally, solar electricity is not subject to fuel cost increases and can provide the benefits of distributed generation.
