Solar power progress in the United States is expected to advance to record levels as prices decline and technology improves, Wood Mackenzie finds.

Energy consultant group Wood Mackenzie finds it’s getting cheaper to install solar power components. With this, new solar capacity has evolved from a niche renewable sector to something that’s pressuring conventional business models in the utility industry.
