that flies in the face of what has really happened in the past couple of years...sounds more like an ad for a broker to sell PV panel stock.

Before you buy - look up evergreen solar, winslow green, solyndra and see how those buinesses did...NOT.

The only thing that will drive the prices lower is more availability and acceptance by the public. No amount of government meddling will help.

This industry may simply not survive, as the manufacturing process is perceived to be one of the more toxic around, by the greenies, and they ride herd on everything nowadays, turning even a good idea in to a hot political potato....

They are not interested in solutions, just advancing their notion of the way the world should be...that is why you see virtually no PV panel manufacturing in the USA, some assembly perhaps...but leave the dirty work to the rest of the world.
