The Department of Energy announced April 24 up to $5 million available this year to develop plug-and-play photovoltaic systems. The funding, part of the agency’s SunShot Initiative, will help drive innovations to alter the design and installation of residential PV systems that can be purchased, installed, and operational in one day, thus reducing non-hardware costs, which currently account for half of the total cost of residential systems. As part of a planned five-year program, the agency will invest an initial $5 million for two projects that will develop innovative prototypes through university, industry, and utility partnerships, and the department plans to make an additional $20 million request to Congress over the next four years to support these efforts.
