Photovoltaics Cost Issues

Friday, January 27th, 2006

Photovoltaics are expensive to produce because of the high cost of semiconducting materials. Cost reductions can be achieved by reducing manufacturing costs. As manufacturing capacity increases, costs of manufacturing decrease. Manufacturers aim to achieve the break-even cost for a photovoltaic system, at which the cost of the electricity it produces is equal to the cost […]
