    Electrek green energy brief: Austin building code goes solar,


    Trump to ignore Solar ITC – Analysts are suggesting that the Trump administration are going to let the Federal Solar Tax Credit, the ITC, run its course – mainly because of the political support on both sides of the aisle. The article, and others I’ve heard talk on the topic, say that the incentive has a natural ending period – that starts in 2020 – that will make it easier to ignore. Bill Gates, after a call with Trump, said that federal support for renewables would wane…we’ll see that these things mean.

    Hanwha Q Cells MONO solar panels being offered in China at 32¢-33¢/kWh – the price is still falling (and these are mono panels – not poly). At this point, ever penny per watt represents a multiple percent fall. The panels are going to have less and less of an influence on pricing as we move forward simply because there is only so far for them to fall until they have to lower the price of the commodities making the panels (silicon already saw those drops). Of course, as efficiency increases and the actual wattage per volume of commodities increases – it makes it much easier for pricing to fall…over production of poly silicon will help as well.
