Berkeley Lab’s latest “Utility-Scale Solar” report sees continued growth and falling costs for big solar

The 2021 edition of Berkeley Lab’s Utility-Scale Solarreport was recently published.

This report explores trends in deployment, technology, capital and operating costs, capacity factors, the levelized cost of solar energy (LCOE), power purchase agreement (PPA) prices, and wholesale market value among the fleet of utility-scale solar (and solar+storage) plants in the United States.

This is all about large scale renewable energy.
