The SunShot Initiative aggressively supports development of low-cost, high-efficiency photovoltaic (PV) technologies in order to to make solar electricity cost-competitive with other sources of energy by 2020. As of February 2014, only three years into the decade-long SunShot Initiative, the solar industry is already more than 60% of the way to achieving SunShot’s cost target of $0.06 per kilowatt-hour for utility-scale PV (based on 2010 baseline figures). Check out the 2014 SunShot Initiative Portfolio Book to find a full list of all SunShot's PV projects as of May 2014.
