German Small Solar Cheaper Than U.S. Big Solar

Of course, price comparisons are tricky, because the U.S. has no clearinghouse for solar installation data (again, the result of its hodge-podge federal-state-local policies).

It’s not clear how much overlap there is between that data and the Renewables International report of $4.50 per Watt for solar 1 megawatt and larger.
