Could US solar electricity reach $0/kWh?

A new Credit Suisse report suggests that from 2025 - 2032, the US could see solar & wind power purchase agreements signed for under $0.01/kWh

The US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) could become a transformative document, enabling a grand experiment in energy generation at a national level, according to a new report by Credit Suisse. It believes that the United States has an opportunity to become a global leader in clean energy, much like it is already in the fossil industry.

Among the many ideas discussed in the document is a striking prediction – there may be solar power projects whose levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) drops below a penny per kilowatt hour, bottoming around $0.004/kWh ($4/MWh) in 2029. We could see these prices as soon as 2025, and they could persist beyond 2030.
