The U.S. government has announced additional funds to support the commercial roll-out of utility-scale solar power.
The government initiative, called "SunShot," has provided recent awards:
- The Bay Area PV Consortium and SVTC Technologies each receive $25 million to research high-volume PV production and bring down to-market costs.
- The U.S. Photovoltaic Manufacturing Consortium is getting $62.5 million to find ways to reduce the cost of manufacturing thin film photovoltaics, increase manufacturing efficiency, and develop a skilled workforce.
