This is good news for small-medium businesses and non-profits that own their own buildings. In the example given in the article, the cost reduction is about 2% of total system price. However, because real prices are actually quite a bit lower than the figure given, the percentage change is larger.

Churches could be important beneficiaries of this change, because many of them are interested in installing solar panels and they tend to be very price-sensitive as well as environmentally conscious.
