Happy Watts – (www.happywatts.com) Since this survey started back in mid 2001, there have been only 13 times that the number of price declines has been 100 or greater in a single month. 5 of those have now occurred in 2009 alone including the result this month. The only year to exceed that number was in 2002, when 6 of the 12 monthly results showed 100 or more price declines.
The September result, therefore, maintains the pattern of recent months. The rate of decline was not as great as last month and the overall price activity was also down. Nonetheless, the US index dropped by a further 6 cents per watt, while the European retail index dropped 6 euro cents per watt. via SolarBuzz>>
