The title of this post is a bit misleading. This article explores the range of impacts on various industries that result from the major decline in solar prices. There are some winners, some losers and, no surprise, still some skeptics. See the whole article, here.
What does it mean? Depends on who you ask? Some analysts see so-called grid parity coming soon for residential consumers in high cost states (like NY?); others think the cost of solar will never truly be competitive.
