Berkeley Lab's Tracking the Sun IX: Distributed PV Pricing Trends

Meeting Description:

Please join us for a free webinar summarizing key findings from the latest edition of Berkeley Lab’s Tracking the Sun annual report series. The report describes trends in the installed price of residential and non-residential photovoltaic (PV) systems installed in the United States, focusing on systems installed through year-end 2015, with preliminary data for systems installed in the first half of 2016. The report provides an overview of both long-term and more-recent trends, highlighting key drivers for installed price declines over different time horizons. The report also extensively characterizes the widespread variability in system pricing, comparing installed prices across states, market segments, installers, and various system and technology characteristics.

The full report, along with an accompanying summary slide deck and data file, can be downloaded for free at We appreciate the funding support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Energy Technologies Office.
