How did solar get so cheap?
This episode comes courtesy of the smart folks at Energy vs. Climate podcast. Solar energy is the good news story of the 21st century so far. How did a clean energy technology drop from costing 105 dollars per watt of electricity down to just 20 cents over the span of a few decades? And how can other clean technologies ride the same curve? Here the team at Energy vs. Climate – Ed Whittingham, Sara Hastings-Simon and David Keith – interview the man who wrote the book on it.

Guests: Energy vs. Climate podcast & Gregory Nemet (Author “How Solar Energy Became Cheap”)
