Over the next five years, revenue within the Solar Farm industry is expected to grow tremendously. In general, the capital costs associated with developing and constructing a new solar farm are expected to fall substantially over the next five years due to an excess supply of solar panels as well as general improvements and advancements in solar power technology, which will reduce the per kilowatt-hour (kilowatt of electricity generated in one hour) cost of solar power.
