SunShot Program: Your Tax Dollars at Work Growing Solar: The Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Program has a

The Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Program has a specific goal: to move the cost of solar-energy-generated electricity to be competitive, without subsidies, with the cost of fossil-fuel-generated electricity by 2020. In service to that, it supports research in every dimension of both photovoltaic (PV) solar and concentrating solar power (CSP) along the entire gamut from basic to applied science. DOE calls SunShot “the Apollo Mission of our time.” Because things in Washington, D.C. go down more easily when there are numbers attached, DOE Solar Technology Development Manager Joseph Stekli noted that the SunShot program designated an unsubsidized cost of six cents per kilowatt-hour as its target for solar power plants. That translates, according to the DOE, to $3.60 per watt for CSP systems with up to 14 hours of thermal energy storage (TES) . The specific goals for TES a...
