Solar panel costs have come down dramatically: the industry expects that, even in the UK, solar power will be comparable to offshore wind energy by 2015.
Ten days ago Greenpeace told us that solar PV would be grid comparable by 2015.
That at the point of use solar would be the same price as coal derived (still one of the cheapest options, which is why we have this whole problem in the first place) \’leccie.
Now we\’re being told that it will be comparable to offshore wind: OK, sure, that\’s \’leccie that goes into the grid but it\’s twice or more the price than coal or gas produced.
Nice moving of the goalposts, don\’t you think?
