Photovoltaic Cost and Price Relationship - Renewable Energy World. #solar @SolarGCC @SASIASolar

A discussion of cost in the photovoltaic industry has to include the effect of incentives (tax and other), subsidies, grants, loans with favorable repayment rates, labor costs including benefits such as health care and unemployment, variable costs such as electricity, working conditions and frankly government goals concerning support. To ignore the rapid growth of manufacturing in low cost countries or to explain China’s lower manufacturing costs simply by virtue of money earned through the U.S. stock market ignores the significant differences country by country. All manufacturers have benefited at one time or another from significant government support for manufacturing. First Solar enjoyed support from the German government when it set up manufacturing in Germany in 2006/07 and no doubt irked more than one government official in that country when it exited in 2013.
