I hope everyone has read Kees Van Der Leun’s post about the rapidly falling cost of solar PV . I want to draw out one quick point that Kees leaves implicit. He argues that PV will be the cheapest source of electricity for most of the world some time around 2018, and for the rest of the world soon after. That could be off by a few years in either direction. It depends on whether the cost curve for silicon solar cells continues as it has the past and, as Alan says in his comment , whether the cost curve for “balance of system” costs (steel, glass, installation, etc.) declines as well. Let’s say it could be off by five years either way.

Sep 30, Chemistry/Materials Science The 'artificial leaf,' a device that can harness sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen without needing any external connections, is seen with some real leaves, which also convert the energy of sunlight directly into storable chemical form.

Home > Solar PV (photovoltaic) What's All The Fuss About Solar PV? Through the Solar PV Feed in Tariff, private households with Solar Panels are currently paid 15.44p for each unit of electricity that they generate, for 20 years. A Solar system will cost from £4,500 depending on system size. Through Feed in Tariff earnings of up to £900 each year, this can be recovered within 10 years. Feed in Tariff income is tax free for all domestic owner occupiers.
