Commercial solar is already cheaper than the grid and the gap is widening

 

Commercial solar costs are already cheaper than commercial grid-based electricity and will continue to decline dramatically. Since solar energy is a technology rather than a fuel, it has allowed for dramatic advancements that have generated exponential cost savings, while the price of grid-based electricity remains relatively constant.

Those who view cost as one of the downsides to making the switch to solar clearly rely on outdated models, and look for this pattern to become more dramatic down the road. As the marketplace for energy continues to evolve, look for solar to lead the way as a cheap and accessible alternative.
