Solar remains attractive alternative
TO THE EDITORS:
While it is true that the solar renewable energy credit value has dropped considerably from its price of several years ago (and its future trend remains difficult to predict), solar PV equipment prices also have dropped significantly during this same time period (typically 50 percent or more for the panels themselves).
Anyone currently considering a solar PV installation is faced with a much lower upfront outlay, reducing the need for reliance on SREC pricing to justify the investment. Solar PV remains a very attractive alternative -- not only environmentally but also economically.
