Thoughts on “dollar-a-watt” solar.

Since the 80s people have been talking about new technologies and breakthroughs that would “soon” produce “dollar-a-watt” solar panels.

Though you may not be able to buy the official “dollar-a-watt” solar panels yet,(http://www.globalsolar.com/company/) aren’t the now 3 dollar a watt solar panels actually equal to the dollar a watt concept from the 80s?

if you check the website “measuring worth” you find that the 2008 dollar is valued at exactly half of a 1985 dollar.

So to follow this to its conclusion we are now at dollar fifty-a-watt front line name brand solar panels. (when measured by value)
