The bad news for the solar industry? Prices for solar cells have fallen by about 2/3 since Q1, to just $0.45/watt. The good news? Some think prices won't fall much further, as inventory gets cleared out and weaker firms go out of business. But Q1 could upend those hopes, given seasonal weakness and the arrival of European subsidy cuts.
