      Costs Continue to Decline for Residential and Commercial Photovoltaics in 2018

      Continuing an annual NREL cost benchmarking effort that began in 2010, “U.S. Solar Photovoltaic System Cost Benchmark: Q1 2018,” found installed costs of PV systems declined across two of three sectors in the first quarter of 2018 from a year earlier. The other report, “2018 U.S. Utility-Scale Photovoltaics-Plus-Energy Storage System Cost Benchmark,” establishes NREL’s first benchmark of PV-plus-storage costs. Both reports and their models can be used to estimate future cost-reduction opportunities for PV and PV-plus-storage systems, helping to guide research and track costs.

    2. NREL Report Estimates Market Potential of Shared Solar and Discusses Relevant Securities Regulations

      NREL Report Estimates Market Potential of Shared Solar and Discusses Relevant Securities Regulations

      Analysis from the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) finds that by making shared solar programs available to households and businesses that currently cannot host on-site photovoltaic (PV) systems shared solar could represent 32 to 49 percent of the distributed photovoltaic market in 2020. Shared solar models allocate the electricity of a jointly owned or leased system to offset individual consumers' electricity bills, allowing energy consumers to share the benefits of a single solar array.
