US Solar Figures begin to make sense

Solar Installations Rise, but Manufacturing Declines - NYTimes.com:
"The report gives a detailed financial explanation for the trend. It is far cheaper, per watt of capacity, to put a solar panel on a commercial roof or out in the open desert than on a house.

In the second quarter, residential installations cost $6.42 per watt; nonresidential installations cost $5.20 per watt and installations done by the utilities themselves cost $3.75 per watt. "
