On May 7, Minh Le, director of the SunShot Initiative, participated in a live #SolarChat to discuss the Energy Department's robust solar success record and how SunShot is setting a new standard in public-private scientific research & development partnerships to advance our nation’s clean energy future. Joined by a panel featuring DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions, Stanford University, and EnergySage, Le and other solar community leaders discussed SunShot’s vision for America’s solar future in advance of the 2014 SunShot Grand Challenge Summit in Anaheim, California from May 18-22.

The solar community was engaged and prolific during the chat, with 187 contributors reaching thousands of accounts with their tweets.

Only three years into the DOE SunShot Initiative, the solar industry is already 60% of the way to achieving a goal of $0.06 per kWh for utility-scale solar electricity by 2020. Many of the 187 #SolarChat attendees got their start with SunShot's help. They are advancing solar, reaching new markets, lowering soft costs, and creating new customer acquisition strategies for widespread solar adoption.
