  • DOE - Solar Energy Technologies
    The U.S. Department of Energy funds R&D to develop solar energy technologies. Learn about DOE solar energy programs and initiatives, how to use solar energy and get financial incentives, and access solar information.
  • DOE - SunShot Inititiative
    The DOE SunShot Initiative is a collaborative national initiative to make solar energy cost competitive with other forms of energy by the end of the decade. Reducing the installed cost of solar energy systems by about 75% will drive widespread, large-scale adoption of this renewable energy technology and restore U.S. leadership in the global clean energy race.
  • NREL - Open PV Project
    The OpenPV project is a free database of real American solar project info sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. It has data on over 160,000 solar systems across the country - where they are, how big they are, how much they cost, and more. It's all illustrated in a Visualization Gallery with charts and graphs.
