  •  I sincerely hope you are right (0+ / 0-)

    however, I'm watching events on the ground and I am seeing a lot of road blocks.  Environmentalists just killed 500 MW of solar here in California which represents about a third of the TOTAL installed capacity.  With the RPS being met, no new wind or utility solar are being planned now.  The utilities are pushing in Sacramento to make Community Choice Aggregation harder.  The wind production tax credit was very nearly killed in the last budget negotiations.

    THere are all manner of difficult obstacles ahead.  I would be beyond thrilled if you were 100% correct.  HOwever, I fear that it won't be that easy, so we have to consider what happens when it is slower than that.

      Wholesale prices are a buck/watt, and if the trend holds,
      we will see some amazing discounts.

      it's starting to get cheaper to make PV power and heat water electrically,  which is just nuts.

      I have a old friend who is at SunEdison and they are getting now quotes on Whole panels at 50cents/watt.

      Thats a game changing price.
