It’s happening fast.
Ten years ago the solar industry only dreamed of producing solar panels for $1.00 per watt.
In just five years, those prices had been cut in half to about $0.50 per watt.
And today major producers like Yingli Green Energy (NYSE: YGE) and Trina Solar (NYSE: TSL) are making solar panels for $0.40/watt or less.
