Low Cost Solar Power Gets $60 Million Grant


In just three years, the cost of solar energy has plunged a whopping 70 percent. The Department of Energy recently announced a new round of $60 million in grants from innovative solar funding programs.


“The Solar Marketplace providers are pre-screened and an automated format makes choosing among numerous options a relatively easy task, while competition for consumers helps keep prices in check.”


The new round of funding devotes $12 million to 17 companies that will help lower the soft costs of solar power. That includes the Solar Marketplace as well as a new rooftop solar mapping tool and automatic installation systems designed for utility-scale solar plants.
