Solar has crossed over to grid parity

According to Stephen Lacey

We are starting to realize grid parity in solar – all with technologies available today.

and

In solar PV manufacturing, costs have fallen about 18% for every doubling of production.

and

This modular technology can be produced and installed at a pace far faster than most energy technologies. And businesses are getting amazingly efficient at doing so.

and compared with nuclear

solar brings a different kind of value to the grid. Not only can it be quickly deployed on existing infrastructure (warehouses, commercial buildings, residences) at rates that are orders of magnitude faster than nuclear, it offsets the most expensive peaking power plants – providing immediate economic value.
