Today in Cleantech

A Scientific American post from March predicted that with the cost of solar power falling 7 percent a year over the past three decades, we’re approaching a Moore’s Law of sorts for solar that will put solar on par with traditional electricity pricing by 2019. Well, in defense of solar and in criticism of fracking/natural gas exploration, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman is arguing that Solyndra was victim to a positive trend in solar pricing that could be great for the overall alternative energy economy. I’ve long felt that Solyndra’s demise was less about demand for solar and more about a company not being able to compete against competitors with cheaper products. Those cheaper products, 70 percent made in China, represents a great trend of falling alternative energy pricing for solar.
