Living in an affordable and competitive solar future

Solar energy is now cost competitive with fossil energy generation. A watt of power from ground-mounted solar will drop a further 36 percent by 2025.


It is estimated that renewable energy accounted for over 55 percent of all new electrical capacity worldwide in 2016.

Bloomberg New Energy Finance put together this stunning solar photo collection to make a point that solar’s appeal isn’t just one of cost; it’s the most democratized and decentralized power source. Enjoy!
