Have you been thinking about getting into Solar PV or Solar thermal? With recent changes to incentive programs at federal, state and local levels, there has never been a better time. And if you need any more incentive, just peek at the graph above of real costs over the last quarter century. Even if prices don’t hit the forecast of $0.74/watt, prices have already fallen 98%. Are you really waiting for that last 1%?
As David Eves, the CEO of Xcel’s Colorado subsidiary recently said: “This is the first time that we’ve seen, purely on a price basis, that the solar projects made the cut — without considering carbon costs or the need to comply with a renewable energy standard — strictly on an economic basis.” This will make solar competitive with natural gas!
Entellis Collaborative has just completed several very interesting solar installations on multifamily buildings in Washington and Maryland. Contact Prescott Gaylord today to find out how Solar PV and Solar thermal can enhance your current projects.
