Solar Socket (Grid) Parity In California, Australia, Germany, Italy, & Netherlands / CleanTechnica
I forget now how I ran across this chart, but it's a nice one. It shows that residential solar PV power hit socket parity (aka grid parity) in California, Germany, Australia, Italy, and the Netherlands in 2013. Of course, these are based on averages, including average solar PV system prices and average retail electricity prices (excluding fixed charges).
