The biden administration want to reduce solar install cost by 60%.
If you delete any associated taxes , permits fees, inspection costs, make the panels and inverter free you can just about get there.
What is the average install cost now?
The biggest cost is the installer isn't it?
In my area it was running 3 to $4 per DC watt installed, before tax credit. I did it myself and the cost ended up almost exactly at $1 per watt after tax credit, or about $1.5 per watt before the tax credit. I'm sure costs very wildly. Tesla solar appears dirt cheap.
But at $1 per watt installed with my expected output over twenty years, I'm looking at 4 cents per kWh. That's seems good to me.
