Why is solar technology still so expensive? It’s been around since 1955, and most would still consider it to be cost prohibitive.
By now, shouldn’t it just be the norm when it comes to providing energy for most homes and buildings? Other newer technologies like flat panel TVs drop in price after just a year or so. Heck, they’re giving away older versions of the iPhone these days.
I don’t have the answer, but it’s safe to assume that it’s not by accident.
