    but the bottom line seems to be that new technology is in the works, looks promising, will be more efficient at producing electricity, lowering costs so that in the future solar will be able to provide much more electricity at competitive costs, so the trendline will probably continue as predicted.

    It makes not sense to assume no technological advances.  I remember the stories about the suggestion to close the patent office as surely everything had already been discovered more than 100 years ago.  Human history doesn't support a prediction that new technology won't appear.   Will it be enough, soon enough, to stop us from destroying the climate to the point where life is vitually unsupportable as we know it,  that seems to be the question, not will solar continue to expand and be cheaper.
