Solar energy has fallen in price to the level of nuclear
It is no secret that the cost of photovoltaic cells is constantly decreasing: since 1998, they have fallen in price by half. Thus, solar energy becomes more profitable in production. According to research conducted by scientists from Duke University, some commercial manufacturers in the United States began to supply solar energy at prices below 16 cents per kWh (14 cents in North Carolina), which is cheaper than the average cost of nuclear energy. Thus, in 2010, a historic event took place, which was long awaited - the installation of solar panels became more profitable than the construction of nuclear power plants.
