I'm a bit baffled. Is that the cost of panels before or after subsidies?

Ben Jamin' said...

regarding subsidies, I don't know. Does it matter?

I'm baffled too, where's the failure?

George Carty said...

Is it the "Decrease in prices -74%" (ie the double-negative)?

Ben Jamin' said...

'Cos prices haven't kept falling. They leveled off after 2012. Duh!

BJ good one!

Bayard said...

BJ, that doesn't mean to say they are not still falling. Ask any Global Warmmonger.

Badly worded. The heading on the chart has it right. That said prices bid in tendering for new solar generation in Germany is at record lows this autumn. Below 0.07 euro p/kwh. So prices at source if not at system level continue to fall.

@ P

"Badly worded. The heading on the chart has it right."

Thats right, because level is the same as falling. I see that now, so not a propaganda fail but a success. God bless the sheeple!

BJ. Clearly,'solar prices keep falling' on 'that' chart is wrong. That looks like a tweet? On the chart itself is the heading 'solar prices down since 2006 by 74%', which is correct. Mind you, the guy who tweeted the misleading comment above the chart could be excused seeing as no one here spotted the error until you pointed it out.
