As qerqwe points out, solar just isn't economical yet. But, if we got a few more breakthroughs, it may be in the not too-distant future.

I live in Phoenix where the sun shines all the time and I see all these rooftops. Very Very few with any sort of solar panels. WHY? It easy, there is no pay back. IE. SOLAR IS NOT YET ECONOMICAL. But... it is getting better.

I think its still in the beginning stages and needs a lot of investing to get it going.

PV at $1/W and oil at $100 a barrel are the magic figures

Nice article. Lots have been said about solar market. Unless there is a strong approach from business houses and governments towards making solar as first choice or atleast supporting the growth of solar industry, we will see ups and down in its business.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
