DOE to award $13.7 M for Solar Power Tech

Today, the Department of Energy announced that it will award $13.7 Million for 11 university projects that develop Photo Voltaic Devices. They write :

These projects have the potential to significantly reduce the cost of electricity produced by PV from current levels of $0.18-$0.23 per Kilowatt hour (kWh) to $0.05 – $0.10 per kWh by 2015 – a price that is competitive in markets nationwide.

Don’t start writing applications. They’re announcing the winners. Hey Bonna, MIT is on there. Is that your stuff?
