Title: 2017 Alabama PV Soft Cost and Workforce Development

Abstract

In 2016, the first comprehensive analysis of the solar market in Alabama was conducted. The market was found to be immature, but price competitive with other parts of the Southeast and the nation. A second survey was completed one year later in 2017 to help understand the changes in trends and changes in the solar market in AL over the calendar. AL is one of three states without comprehensive net metering legislation, yet remains cost competitive with other states around the US and the Southeast. Residential systems average 2.4/W DC, which is considerably lower than the nationwide median of 4/W. Commercial systems cost an average of 2.15/W-DC, which is also below the national median of 2.30/W for nonresidential systems over 500 kW.
