Members of the Holistic Solar team date back to the begging of Age of Solar 1. This has started with the invention of the transistor in the early 1960’s. In the following 50 year period until 2017 during the Age of Solar 1 SPV electricity generation became cost competitive. In areas of 2000 hours of insolation the cost of solar electiricy has reached $0.10/ kWh.

Also during the Age of Solar 1, crystalline and polycrystalline modules have become the technology of choice.

At the end of the period of Age of Solar 1 China effectively controlled this industry by manufacturing almost all the crystalline silicon modules with a capacity of 50 GW.

The cumulative installed SPV generation worldwide has reached 400 GW.
