The Decline of the Price of Silicon PV Cells


(B) The quest toward highly efficient solar photovoltaics (PV) cells is still rapidly advancing. That progress is well summarized by the declining price of silicon photovoltaics (PV) cells. While there was a lot of excitement seven to five years ago in green tech by the venture investment community, many of those investments have slowed down for a long time, so it was refreshing for me to read that both Fred Wilson and Albert Wenger, partners at Union Square Ventures, are bullish on solar: “the bull case for solar” and “solar”.
