Solar Power is Now the Cheapest Source of Electricity

Posted on Oct 15, 2020

Could Solar Energy really be the cheapest source of electricity?

The answer, according to a new report released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), is yes.

Sunshine is free, but the technology needed to turn it into usable electricity can be expensive. To encourage more people and companies to switch to solar power, countries can adjust their policies to make purchasing that equipment more affordable. Today, more than 130 countries have policies that lower the cost of building new solar installations. This is the first year that the IEA took such policies into consideration when calculating the cost of solar energy in its annual...

People in Quarantine are Searching for Solar Power

Posted on Jun 14, 2020

When the COVID-19 panic began to grow, many people feared that the solar industry would be put on hold until economies reopened and life returned to relative normalcy. With the desire to save money and minimize interactions with others, it makes sense that this was predicted once most Americans were ordered to stay at home.

New data from a consumer survey, conducted by The Harris Poll for LG, shows that consumer interest in investing in solar has actually risen since the start of the pandemic. The survey found that not only has there been a 13% increase in people who are now considering solar since the onset of Covid-19, but that increase also outweighs the...

See Why Even Skeptics are Switching to Solar

Posted on May 8, 2020

There has never been a better time than the present to go solar. The cost of solar power has plummeted over the past four decades, with the greatest cost reductions occurring in just the last few years.

Solar panels are extremely affordable for the average consumer, as they've dropped in price as much as 70 percent over only the last decade. Going solar now just makes more sense than being chained to the utility companies, and disadvantages are few and far between.
