How did solar get to where it is today? And how will the solar future pan out? John Farrell at the Institute for Self-Reliant States has written a neat history of solar economics which, along with some interesting charts, illustrates that a key part of solar’s past success will also be key to its success in the future.

Starting at the beginning: the past, says Farrell, is characterised by subsidisation and net metering: a revolutionary concept “allowing smaller scale arrays… to connect to the grid at low cost, and for that solar energy to be credited to the producer’s electric bill as though it were a comparable amount of energy conservation.”
