DOE Under Secretary Testifies on Solar Funding

March 24, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] Under Secretary of Energy Robert Card testified this week at a hearing before the House Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Water, noting in his testimony that solar technology “can provide the nation with a widely available domestic energy resource to help meet electricity needs and reduce the stress on our critical electricity infrastructure,” according to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SIEA). He mentioned that Fiscal Year 2005 funding was approximately equal to this year’s funding. Card reiterated DOE’s goal “to reduce the cost to about 6 cents/kWh in order to be competitive in most markets.”
