The installed price of solar PV power systems in the United States fell substantially in 2012 and through the first half of 2013 – the third year in a row of significant price reductions for PV systems in the US, according to the DOE Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
Installed prices decreased by a range of $0.30/W to $0.90/W, or 6 to 14 percent, from the prior year, depending on variables such as the size of the system.
